    Hello.

    I want to reread the rc.conf file without reboot.
    How does one do that?

    /etc/netstart restarts the network but /etc/rc.conf
    does nothing.

    Is it me or...

    What you probably want is to apply some change in the settings of rc.conf.
    This can usually be done by restarting just the affected components.

    There *are* a few changes of rc.conf that may ultimately affect too many
    components and/or services of the running system that a plain reboot may be
    the best option you have, but you would have to give us more details about
    the changes you made before we tell you what's the best thing to do.

    What is it exactly that you changed in rc.conf?
     

    True.

    The rc.conf file doesn't "do" anything. It merely contains options and flags
    for other startup scripts. Depending on your FreeBSD version, the scripts
    that are affected by rc.conf's contents are either the /etc/rc.* files (for
    versions released before FreeBSD 5.3) or /etc/rc.d/* (for 5.3 and newer
    releases).

    Thanks Jeff. It seems like one can't reload rc.conf from an ssh session.
    Well. That's that i suppose. Thank you ALL for the input.

    Yes, you can't "reload" rc.conf. It doesn't make sense, because rc.conf
    is not "loaded" after a system has brought itself up. It only serves as
    a useful collection of options and is pd (mostly) at startup time by
    some of the startup scripts.

    If you have some specific changes to rc.conf in mind that you need to
    apply without a reboot, it's usually possible. We'd have to know what
    the exact changes were though, before any meaningful response could be
    written.
