That depend what you using for a DHCP server. If you use isc-dhcpd then you can configure it to bind an IP to your MAC address. I can't give you an example. I think one exist in in the manual. You could also just use a static IP as an alternitive. -- 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]"
