Hmm, is that all?  Unusual; I'd think the loopback _should_ be set
up correctly.

`ifconfig lo0 inet netmask`  ??

If that fixes it, then we have to figure out *why* it's not being
doing automatically.  Problem during init/rc, most likely ... weird.

I've not had time to address this problem for a week. Going through all the advice again I found that this advice is good. That fixes the problem. Any pointers on getting it done automatically?

What does /etc/rc.conf show for lo0 related things? (And just to check your defaults as well...)

egrep lo0 /etc/rc.conf /etc/defaults/*

Mine shows:

/etc/defaults/rc.conf:ifconfig_lo0="inet" # default loopback device configuration.

Same here

Just to confirm, since I didn't really read the beginning of this thread, when you reboot your machine, the setting for lo0 is already wrong, yes?

Since we now know that the rc settings look ok, maybe some script is doing the dirty, so what does

egrep 'lo0|ifconfig' /etc/rc.d/* /usr/local/etc/rc.d/*

show? I do have numerous hits in /etc/rc.d, none of which look like they would affect lo0 unless you specified lo0 in /etc/rc.conf. I have no hits in /usr/local/etc/rc.d/*, which is what I would expect -- if you get any hits there then follow them up to see what they are doing. If you get hits in /etc/rc.d not in my list then have a look. (I'm still on FreeBSD 5 so if you are on 6 then you may get slightly fewer or more hits, but I wouldn't expect too drastic differences).

My hits are:

/etc/rc.d/atm1:                 ifconfig ${natm} up
/etc/rc.d/dhclient:             ifconfig ${ifn}
