One idea I had was adding some sort of profile support to netif. rc.conf: # Network profiles: netprofile_enable="YES" netprofile_list="HomeWired HomeWifi" HomeWired_ifconfig_em0="DHCP" HomeWifi_ifconfig_iwi0="DHCP" With netprofile_enable set it would cycle through the profile list stopping with the first that succeeded. Additionally you could do `/etc/rc.d/netif action profile` to start up the interfaces associated with a particular profile. I wanted to do this since I have home wired and wifi and work wired and wifi I use my laptop with. I got distracted so I stopped looking at the idea. tom -- | tmclaugh at sdf.lonestar.org tmclaugh at FreeBSD.org | | FreeBSD http://www.FreeBSD.org | | BSD# http://www.mono-project.com/Mono:FreeBSD | _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
