On a freebsd 4.8-STABLE #0 system
The archives provide excellent information setting up an alias and assigning an ip
address to a NIC card. There are no examples using DHCP and I thought it would be a
simple matter of following the examples and putting the following in my rc.conf file
ifconfig_fxp0_alias0="DHCP" <=== new config item ...
and everything would magically work.
Unfortunately not. Does anyone have any thoughts. I am using a provider who allows
two ip per account. Perhaps I need to assign a different mac address to the aliased
card. Maybe that's a stupid thought. I'm not sure.
Help would be greatly appreciated.
If the only prayer you say in your entire life is "Thank You",
that will suffice.
