#964: Control Panel/Network Configuration - serious issues!

Comment (by kenmoore):

 It looks like it is working fine here.
 How are you starting the utility? It needs root permissions in order to be
 able to save network configuration changes (the PC-BSD Control Panel uses
 "sudo" to start it). I am also not seeing any general stability/crashes,
 so additional information about what you were doing at the time would be
 helpful to narrow down any issues.

 A couple notes:
 The network settings are never saved to "/etc/networks" on FreeBSD.
 Instead general network settings (hostname, gateway, ipv4/ipv6) are saved
 in "/etc/rc.conf", while DNS information is saved in "/etc/dhclient.conf"
 or "/etc/resolv.conf".
