i was thinking more along the lines, that you would pre-set your 2 ip addresses, and let the dhclient file request only default gateway. or... might it not be simpler, to configure a static DHCP lease for the box at each site, thus guaranteeing that it always has the .250? in the end, thats probably the "best mileage" way to go. jonathan _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
