Under the old, the same command would have failed, too.

Yes. tty00 is no network device. ifconfig complains it cant find any
network interface called "tty" with unit 0. 

Looks like youre looking for some Ethernet (ae0, ed0, le0, es0..) or 
ARCnet (bah0) device. 

(In case of point-to-point devices pppN and slipN for N being some small
number, probably 0, there should be another problem: point to point
device dont take netmasks.)
