Do you wan't to have a better understanding of FreeBSD or do you just want a quick way to doing this? > I've looked at the handbook & did a Google search already: > http://www.FreeBSD.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/handbook.html > > ("duplicate server" OR "clone server" OR "copy server configuration") > site:FreeBSD.org > http://tinyurl.com/ulft > > Are there some config files that I could duplicate? Yes. Most port place there config files in /usr/local/etc/ or /usr/local/X11R6/etc/ but there are exeptions to this rule. > How about my IPFW firewall? How can that be transferred? The system config files are located in /etc. The firewall is part of this. One special config file is /etc/rc.conf which determen what gets loaded of the OS during boot. Scripts in /usr/local/etc/rc.d loads the ports during boot. > Are there other programs like IPFW, that aren't listed in > pkg_info? Everthing thats part of the main system isn't listed by pkg_info. -- Alex Articles based on solutions that I use: http://www.kruijff.org/alex/index.php?dir=docs/FreeBSD/ _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
