I'm running 5.3 STABLE.
I need to change the MAC address of my PC.
I know it can be done like this:
ifconfig rl0 ether 11:22:33:44:55:66
So I guessed I could make life a little easier by
adding this in my /etc/rc.conf file as:
ifconfig_rl0="inet 192.168.123.2 netmask 255.255.255.0
However, this does not seem to work. No IP address
is assigned to the LAN card after bootup.
Apparently something is wrong here.
Any idea how I can do this at bootup?
