I've got a FreeBSD 12-RELEASE-p1 VM running in VMware Workstation Pro.
I traveled from network to another, and wanted to refresh my IP address
after suspending and resuming the VM.
To do this, I performed the following after resuming the VM:
service dhclient restart em0
This seemed to work. However, ifconfig reveals something unexpected
After I saw that, I did:
ifconfig em0 down
ifconfig em0 up
and there was no change in the results.
It seems a bit weird.
Anyone know why this doesn't work as expected?
Is there a better way of releasing/renewing the lease?
