24. Configuring Network Interfaces
Introduction to FreeBSD

A network interface is a device that allows you to communicate with your network. These devices could be a network card, or a modem, or a variety of different pieces of equipment that allows communication. These devices need to be configured so that the network knows who you are. These interfaces will be configured to use TCP/IP networking protocols. This is usually setup in the /etc/rc.conf, or /etc/sysconfig if you have a 2.2.1 or older system.
