Dear all,

this is probably a beginners question:

For my script to set up an emulation using vimage and netgraph, i tried to give
meaningful names to netgraph nodes. I tried:

ngctl -f foo mkpeer eiface ether ether (ignores the -f , creates ngethX?)

witout looking at the code I'm guessing it does the file after the command like args.

ngctl mkpeer eiface foo ether (creates ngethX, not foo)

mkpeer takes 4 arguments. it's better to specify them all than try guess the defaults.

ngctl mkpeer eiface ether ether
ngctl name ngeth0 foo (works, but it's not useful for scripting as i have to 
out first the name of the freshly created node)

So basically i would like to use one of the first to forms in my script, but 
don't work as i expected.

Any hints?

This is on FBSD 8.0 RC2
