Thank you for the scrip. I will then asign a single main ip to the interface
in rc.conf and then run this script from /usr/local/etc/rc.d because i think
rc.local is merged after each cvp/buildworld/installworld/mergmaster,
so /usr/local/etc/rc.d is a safer place to to keep it. Right or not?

The other question, will assigning 200+ ip addresses  degrade tcp/ip
perfomance noticeably? 

How to i spell noticably or noticaebly?  :)
