ifconfig(8) understands CIDR notation just fine, although it's not usual to configure an interface using the '.0' /network/ address. Look on it as a third alternate way of specifying the netmask, so that the following three examples are equivalent: ifconfig fxp0 inet 192.168.123.74/29 ifconfig fxp0 inet 192.168.123.74 netmask 0xfffffff8 ifconfig fxp0 inet 192.168.123.74 netmask 255.255.255.248 Those correspond to the slightly contrived example of the /29 network starting with network address 192.168.123.72 and running up to the broadcast address 192.168.123.79 Note: you can give a broadcast address on the ifconfig command line, but usually it's not necessary as a standard value will be calculated from any ip number forming part of that network and from the netmask. However you can't in general use ip address + broadcast to do the converse, as there isn't necessarily a unique solution.
