• Creating and removing interfaces manually is done by using ifconfig (or ip which is bit more tricky to use). Bridges can be controlled with brctl. So after removing all interfaces from a bridge with brctl delif <bridg> <if> it can be moved to "down state" with ifconfig br100 down (or ip link set br100 down) and can now be removed with brctl delbr br100

    • Dec 21, 2012 · When you ifconfig down an interface in FreeBSD it is virtually disabled, that is to say, it stops passing traffic but the physical link (layer 1) remains up. The absence of the physical link down is a shame. There are some good uses for this feature, for example, if have a FreeBSD server directly connected to a (cisco) router and only want the routes announced if the port is up.

    • The ifconfig utility is used to assign an address to a network interface and/or configure network interface parameters. The ifconfig utility must be used at boot time to define the network address of each interface present on a machine; it may also be used at a later time to redefine an interface's address or other operating parameters.
    • If the bridge host needs an IP address then the correct place to set this is on the bridge interface itself rather than one of the member interfaces: ifconfig bridge0 inet 192.168.0.1/24 To remove a interface named by interface from the bridge, enter: ifconfig bridge0 deletem xl0 To destroy the bridge, enter: ifconfig bridge0 destroy
    • If you don't supply a netmask, ifconfig will assume one based on the "class" (A, B, C) of the IP you've supplied. 192.168.2.8 is a Class C address and gets a /24 netmask by default. > The bogus(?) route points to itself (route get shows this more clearly), and doesn't work.
    • Previously, we have talk about how to assigh dynamic IP to an interface on Freebsd. This post is about how to assign fixed or static IP to an interface on Freebsd. Below are the steps : Manually assign fixed IP: ifconfig bce0 inet <IP address> netmask <subnet mask> route add default <gateway IP address> /etc/netstart e.g.
