What I did on a 4.9 box (also works on 5.1) in /boot/loader.conf- if_ef_load="YES" #Loads pseudo-device ef (man(4) ef) nwfs_load="YES" #Loads nwfs module ncp_load="YES" #Loads NCP module in kernel conf- options IPX in /etc/rc.conf- ifconfig_rl0f1_ipx="ipx 0x71ad01b" #See Note below ipxrouted_enable="YES" #Note #my setup is using rl device #pseudo interface used (the rl0f1) #is determined by frame type used #on Novell server. see man(4) ef __________________________________ Do you Yahoo!?
