Hello Bruce,

Thank you for the information. So this is _not_ the way to go with
FreeBSD 6.1-RELEASE #5. Naturally the following question
would be: how then to proceed with FreeBSD 6.1-RELEASE? and most
important is cloned_interfaces="tap0" generally meant to do the things I have
asked for: initialisation and configuration of a tap device during boot.

Met vriendelijke groeten,
With kind regards,
Mit freundlichen Gruessen,
De jrus wah,
