I have installed dhcp to get my FreeBSD system on line, a machine which I am 
trying to set up as a web server. I used sysinstall and it seems to work 
correctly (this e-mail is coming from my Linux workstation). However, when 
working on the FreeBSD machine I keep getting the following message: 
<date & time> dhclient: send_packet: permission denied.
What does this mean? I cannot find a reference to it in the man files.
It is a nuisance. When I am editing a config file with vi, this message get 
written into the file, and over cofig file lines. How can I turn it off.
