I am trying to configure rc.conf to set up my second interface. Right now, I have these lines in the rc.conf file and when I boot the mahine, fxp1 is not configured. Also, it seems that that ipv6 is set up an I am not sure how to disable it. Here is my rc.conf entries that refer to the network:

ifconfig_fxp0="inet  netmask"
ifconfig_fxp1="inet  netmask"

IS there thing else that I need to do to configure fxp1 to survive a reboot? One thing that happens when I configure the NIC with ifconfig is this:
bash-2.05b# ifconfig fxp1 netmask
ifconfig: ioctl (SIOCAIFADDR): File exists
what I end up needing to do is configure the IP and then the network, separately. I think that this error has something to do with my problem, but I am not sure how to deal with that. Any info that anyone ca lead me to will be great.


If I've been learning anything lately, you cannot have two interfaces configured on the same subnet on FreeBSD. The boot process is erroring out on this, hence why you're getting the ifconfig error listed above. One way to get around this is set those interfaces with a netmask of all ones, or, or simply do have these entries in you're rc.conf file:


Again, this is if I got everything correctly.
