    How to configure IP address in jails for a machine without network card.

    Normally, we have to put the network interface (e.g. em0 or igb0) when setting up jails. For example: jail_jailname_ip="192.168.1.100" jail_jailname_interface="igb0" If the network interface (physical card) is being sent as pass-thru via bhyve to a virtualized operating system running within...
