hi-

i have a computer with 2 ethernet interfaces (a dell poweredge 2900) on which the interface names are transposed logically versus physically (e.g. the interface labelled "ethernet 1" is named "bce1" and the interface labelled "ethernet 2" is labelled "bce0").

how can i change this, aside from using the ifconfig name argument?

thanks

Ben,

        The manpage for rc.conf includes the following example:

                It is also possible to rename interface by doing:

                ifconfig_ed0_name="net0"
                ifconfig_net0="inet 10.0.0.1 netmask 0xffff0000"

Obviously you can also do this manually w/ ifconfig, but I suspect hat you'd like this change to occurr everytime you restart.
