really very sorry for that typo & sorry for making you look into the kernel.

yes, i did & i got these 2 *extra* lines for "ifconfig vr0":

inet netmask 0xffffff00 broadcast
inet6 fe80::213:d4ff:fec4:baf3%vr0 prefixlen 64 scopeid 0x1

now what next?

i guess i need to have "/etc/ifconfig.vr0". i tried the "netbsd-guide"
but for me "hostname" & "domainname" are an exercise in confusion.

thanks for your time
