  • hoba,

    I have finded how create a virtual interface but in shell.

    My problem now is how I can execute the shell script (in which I create a virtual ethernet interface) BEFORE the configuration is loaded at boot time.

    I have put my script into /usr/local/etc/rc.d BUT the script is execute AFTER configuration loading…

    Exists a method?

    thank you in advance..



  • I would think you would want to put this in the config.xml.

    There's an option for an early shell command. This may be what you need.
    Basically, you'd have to download the config, edit the xml to add the entry to run your shell script, then restore the modified xml. Good luck.
