In ipfw one can use the address "me" which means "address of any interface on this machine." I don't fully understand what you are trying to do but am guessing "me" or similar will be of help. Another angle would be to "whois w.x.y.z" as that appears to be your current IP address. Stripping out the excess this line is of interest: NetRange: w.(x-1).0.0 - w.x.255.255 The above is one of possibly many IP blocks assigned to your ISP. -- David Kelly N4HHE, [EMAIL PROTECTED] ======================================================================== Whom computers would destroy, they must first drive mad. _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
