This advantage is what I am trying to achieve. But, my experience has
been that it is impossible to re-establish a remote connection with
the host until after it has been rebooted.
Issuing the commands:
'service netif restart && service routing restart &'
has worked for me in the past on CentOS Linux hosts. But I cannot
seem t get this combination to work on FreeBSd.
