I can't understand your last sentence. The obvious thing is that a raised securelevel only helps if it doesn't get in the way of operations you need to do. A bit less obvious is that it only helps if you are sure you will know if the system reboots. -- Lowell Gilbert, embedded/networking software engineer, Boston area http://be-well.ilk.org/~lowell/ _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
