Reset persistent network interface BSD names
Authored by: kwielandinstl on Oct 21, '05 07:54:18AM

Couldn't you just create a symlink from en1 to en2 in /dev , or is OSX much different then *BSD in this regard?

Reset persistent network interface BSD names
Authored by: nathanw on Oct 21, '05 11:24:49AM

In traditional BSD systems, network interfaces don't have nodes in /dev. The device names exist only in a special namespace accessed by ifconfig and the underlying library routines.
