After having installed wine on FreeBSD and used it successfully for some 
applications, I've found that it would be useful to run an application that 
needs a network connection to elsewhere on the network.  It is not apparent to 
me how I would go about configuring TCP/IP in wine, and I've not found anything 
at that explains this.  I've tried adding entries to system.reg for 
TCP/IP but these are ineffective.  Yet I read postings elsewhere from people who 
have done this successfully on Linux, and even a few postings from people who 
have done successfully with FreeBSD in the past (although the technique for 
doing so was unmentioned).

Can someone suggest a resource/how-to that would educate me on how to do this 
for FreeBSD?

For reference, any attempt to use ipconfig gets these messages...

fixme:win:GetProcessWindowStation (void): stub
fixme:user:GetUserObjectInformationW (0x1 2 0x0 0 0x33fbd4),stub!

'AdvApi32.WmiNotificationRegistrationW' used by 
L"C:\\WINDOWS\\system32\\WMI.dll". If you are using builtin L"WMI.dll", try 
using the native one instead.

...and any attempt to ping gets a wine debugger after the following messages...

fixme:seh:EXC_RtlRaiseException call (from 0x1001949) to unimplemented function 
wine: Unhandled exception (thread 000b), starting debugger...

I did take the suggestion mentioned above from the error message (I specified 
'builtin' for WMI.dll), but this had no effect.  My wine version is 20050419.
