Is there a way to add new IPís to a FreeBSD 4.9 or 5.1 box without rebooting. I add them to /etc/rc.conf but they are not effective until a reboot. There are some webhosting assistant programs which allow instant use of IPís with *nix and I was hoping there was a way to do this in FBSD.


This question was the basis for a useful thread a week ago: googling or sifting through the archives should turn up some useful information.


I think every variant of UNIX supports this with ifconfig: something like this (depending on your interface device name).

[/usr/home/paul]:: ifconfig xl1 192.168.2.100 up
