I got a simple problem. My local IP addresses keep changing (didn't have this problem before until a firmware update), and I don't want them to. I got these spammy winboxes that greedily race for to steal my FreeBSD's lease. I'm using a simple 4-port linksys router here. It's configuration is about useless.
Let's say I wanted to be 192.168.1.170 for argument's sake. I turn everything off (router + computers). Set my 'starting IP' to 170. Fire the FreeBSD machine up first, let it get 170. Then I turn the dumb winboxes on, and who cares what they have they arn't important. Like a couple of days later, I'll type "ifconfig" and suddely I got 172 on my FreeBSD box (192.168.1.172) instead of 170. I could turn DHCP off, but then my dhclient takes really really really long to find the network (but it does find it, eventually). How can I setup a more static system here without the long wait for dhclient? Anything in dhclient.conf I can put in there? I want to disable dhcp, but I need to figure out how to efficiently get the connection going on, and basically, I havn't owned FreeBSD in the pre-dhcp era, so I wouldn't know how. _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
