Small hint shown to me many years ago when enabling things in rc.conf. If I want to startup ipfilter for example (trimmed to avoid wrapping). bash-2.05b# cat /etc/defaults/rc.conf | grep ^ipfilter Returns the following, ipfilter_enable="NO" # Set to YES to enable ipfilter ipfilter_program="/sbin/ipf" # where the ipfilter program lives ipfilter_rules="/etc/ipf.rules" # rules definition file for ipfilter, ipfilter_flags="" # additional flags for ipfilter If it looks like what you want then write it into your running rc.conf, cat /etc/defaults/rc.conf | grep ^ipfilter >> /etc/rc.conf Then you can edit to enable, add flags, etc. Cures the typos.
