#964: Control Panel/Network Configuration - serious issues!
  Reporter:  geostar          |      Owner:  kenmoore
      Type:  System Defect    |     Status:  new
  Priority:  critical         |  Milestone:
 Component:  Network Manager  |    Version:  10.0-RELEASE
Resolution:                   |   Keywords:  networking lan

Comment (by geostar):

 I think that all of my issues are related to configuration of user/access
 permissions, that was set during initial installation of the OS. The local
 user is set automatically as user with administration privileges.

 Afterwards, all of my system-wide configuration was done in KDE, with
 password of the local user, that was created during initial installation
 of the OS. When I did any system configuration, I was asked to use
 password of the user with administration privileges, not root. Initially,
 I tried root password. But, the system utility would not accept it, as I
 thought it should. Though, it did take the local user password, with the
 admin. privileges. I'm just basing all that when compared to PC-BSD 9.1,
 which I currently use. Although local user is set to have administration
 privileges, in 9.1, I must use root password to do any system-wide level

 But again, I'm not doing anything different in PCBSD-10, regarding Network
 Configuration, than in PCBSD-9.1 or Linux. I have only issues in PC-BSD 10
 Release, at the moment :(

 Replying to [comment:3 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".
