| My ISP have aauthorization by username, password AND mac address.
| I currently make PPPoE connection from my laptop(win XP) to them.
| However I want to put FreeBSD router in front of my laptop.
| That is why I will need to make MAC address of outgoing ethernet card
| same as my laptop.
| I plan to make bash script(ifconfig down, ifconfig up) for that
| However I prefer a little bit cleaner solution ...
| is there any way I can set MAC address for the network card in
| rc.conf ?
| Thanks :-)))
| Kind regards,
When the system boots, it will read rc.conf, and then
it will pass the ifconfig_inf="..." to ifconfig, so
what I do is just to add ether aa:bb:cc:dd:ee:ff to
ifconfig_fxp0="inet 184.108.40.206 netmask 255.0.0.0 ether aa:bb:cc:dd:ee:ff"
