Indeed, I have forgotten to have the PTR record set up for my new IP address. However the original description is that when I issue a "ping -c 100 x.y.z.w" to a well-known IP address, only the last 70 packets get returned, not the first 30 (hence 30 seconds). This ping command is issued very early in the rc.d scripts, after NETWORK and before named, and the script does not exit until a ping request is successful. _______________________________________________ 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"
