no, it's the subnet. ok, this is not a helpful answer.

But your relating that to the subnet mask later makes total sense, thank you I feel enlightened.

    given the netmask you use, yes. or you could change the mask on all
    hosts to, say,

Sounds advanced and I'm happy leaving things as they are now.

So hear's another question.

Right now I can only access the fbsd box on my lan via ip addr; I set up a hostname but that doesn't seem to be the same as a symbolic name for the fbsd machine on my lan. Here's what /etc/rc.conf looks like:

# This file no longer contains just the overrides from /etc/defaults/rc.conf.
ifconfig_ep0="inet netmask media 10baseT/UTP"

I was surprised when after making this change to rc.conf and rebooting the ip addr got changed to something other than what is specified in rc.conf.

$ ifconfig ep0: flags=8843<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> mtu 1500 inet6 fe80::220:afff:fe4d:24b7%ep0 prefixlen 64 scopeid 0x1 inet netmask 0xffffff00 broadcast ether 00:20:af:4d:24:b7 media: Ethernet 10baseT/UTP lp0: flags=8810<POINTOPOINT,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> mtu 1500 faith0: flags=8002<BROADCAST,MULTICAST> mtu 1500 lo0: flags=8049<UP,LOOPBACK,RUNNING,MULTICAST> mtu 16384 inet6 ::1 prefixlen 128 inet6 fe80::1%lo0 prefixlen 64 scopeid 0x4 inet netmask 0xff000000 ppp0: flags=8010<POINTOPOINT,MULTICAST> mtu 1500 sl0: flags=c010<POINTOPOINT,LINK2,MULTICAST> mtu 552 $

Finally, how do I enable .history for users other than root, and how do I specify how large the shell history may get?

Thanks in advance,
