Hi all,

I am more or less new to FreeBSD and used to Linux. I have setup a server
on FreeBSD at home using DHCP. Now I want to move the server into our
housing environment with fixed IP's.

I found in the docs to change the network configuration I have to assign
the new IP and netmask in /etc/rc.conf to my network card.

Am I also right assinging new servers for DNS lookups in /etc/resolv.conf
using this syntax?

nameserver IP-Address

But where can I set the default gateway address?

Hi Dev!

That's also defined in /etc/rc.conf
configured as


The syntax for /etc/resolv.conf is correct, and yeah since dhcp does not give you any dns servers any more you need to fill them in yourself.

Cheers :-)
