Has anyone else experienced trouble getting packets to other subnets
on the same network after using ifconfig alias with netbsd-1.0? Everything
runs fine for a while (an hour or so), and then 2 out of 4 subnets become
unreachable. The only way to solve this is a reboot. Is this a known
problem, or a problem with the way I am running ifconfig
(ifconfig ed2 newmachinename alias)?
I suspect this is a bug because it is easily reproducible, and
happens after about the period of time.
