I've just installed a FreeBSD 3.2 server with 4 Ethernet Cards. Each
has its own IP address and entry in /etc/rc.conf . I keep getting the
following messages on the system console:
"Jul 22 09:41:24 Intranet /Kernel : arp: 220.127.116.11 is on de0 but
got reply from 08:00:20:96:ce:48 on de2"
18.104.22.168 is a router and de0 and de3 are 2 of the ethernet cards.
There are loads of these messages with various combinations of cards and
As far as I can tell the Ethernet Cards are working fine.
Are these messages normal?
Why are the messages appearing?
How do I stop them appearing and correct any problem?
I would like to schedule some backup routines overnight. Can anyone
recommend the best way to schedule batch files. In AIX I can use
crontabs which schedule files to run at variuos times and with various
options. Is there a similar system with FreeBSD?
