Now, how can I avoid a reboot for such a small > change? To make this rc.conf setting take effect without rebooting:
ifconfig_fxp0="inet 192.168.0.1 netmask 255.255.255.248" you would execute: ifconfig fxp0 inet 192.168.0.1 netmask 255.255.255.248 Try and go through rc.network though and understand exactly what is happening. _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
