That the netmask is 0xffffffff if the alias is on the same subnet as the original IP, if different, then use the appropriate submask for the new alias. - Barry _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
