Here's what I did, for my own local network (I'm not connected to a WAN).
Make some addresses in /etc/hosts:
<6 wormhole># cat /etc/hosts
192.0.2.10 wormhole #NetBSD machine
192.0.2.11 c610 #Centris w/MacOS
192.0.2.12 macii #MacII w/MacOS
Make a file /etc/hostname.ae0 . This causes your enet to be configured:
<7 wormhole># cat /etc/hostname.ae0
inet wormhole 255.255.255.0 192.0.2.255
Then I make an adjustment to /etc/netstart -- set
Seems timed complains if it cannot find anyone to talk to.
Hope this helps...
