That sounds like it's probably what I need. Thank you! To clarify: I have several commonly-used network configs in my /etc/rc.config file, and often change which one I have commented out there, then restart with: # /etc/rc.d/netif restart With the revelation that /etc/rc.d/routing needs a restart, I think that probably solves the problem. -- CCD CopyWrite Chad Perrin [ http://ccd.apotheon.org ] print substr("Just another Perl hacker", 0, -2); _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
