I just upgraded to FreeBSD 4.2 from 4.1. I had 5 IPs assigned to one
nic on 4.1, one main, 4 alias. Now on 4.2, it will not accept aliases
to the nic. When I boot with the config in override /etc/rc.conf, it
assigns the main IP and the first alias, but not the other three. If
I try to manually configure from the IPs to the nic, it comes back
ifconfig: inet: bad value
I have looked every where I can think of for help, both on and off
line and tried every combination I can think of, but nothing works.
It all worked fine under 4.1. Did something get changed in 4.2 to
effect how you assign aliases to one nic????
I have asked all I know who work with FreeBSD and they are as baffled
as I am. Any help or suggestions even if I have already tried them
will be appreciated. I keep thinking I have made some type of
configuration error or something simple that I am missing, but, search
as I might for a problem, I come up empty handed.
4.2 did not come up with a different way to alias a nic, did it???
Thanks in advance,
