Ifconfig does not show skc0 but here is the output for completeness:

xl0: flags=8843<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> mtu 1500
options=9<RXCSUM,VLAN_MTU>
inet 192.168.1.217 netmask 0xffffff00 broadcast 192.168.1.255
inet6 fe80::2b0:d0ff:fe16:3d30%xl0 prefixlen 64 scopeid 0x1
ether 00:b0:d0:16:3d:30
media: Ethernet autoselect (100baseTX <full-duplex>)
status: active
lo0: flags=8049<UP,LOOPBACK,RUNNING,MULTICAST> mtu 16384
inet 127.0.0.1 netmask 0xff000000
inet6 ::1 prefixlen 128
inet6 fe80::1%lo0 prefixlen 64 scopeid 0x2

And rc.conf is:

defaultrouter="192.168.1.1"
hostname="gsdev.bltmobile.com"
ifconfig_xl0="inet 192.168.1.217 netmask 255.255.255.0"
ifconfig_skc0="inet 10.0.130.204 netmask 255.255.255.0"
linux_enable="YES"
moused_enable="YES"
sshd_enable="YES"
usbd_enable="YES"
postgresql_enable="YES"

Anything else that I can send that will help?

Keith
