You can use "ifconfig rl0 ether $NEWMAC" to change the mac address, ether has been around for a while and doesn't require FreeBSD 6.x. You're free to choose any address you like, but most of the time taking a free one (not already taken in your network) makes sense. Fabian -- http://www.fabiankeil.de/
