I'm looking for the netconfig problem, Using the laptop for office networked environment (with DHCP, NIS, NFS etc.) and for home environment (without DHCP, NIS, NFS but with dialup) was quite a setup task etc...
i found x projects for linux but no one which work "easy" with OpenBSD. I tried to modify Netswitch but it didn't work so well with the /etc/hostname.if files.
so my question is what do you use on your laptop?? (or is someone working on a port?)
"Here are the projects for linux that I found:
Bootprofile for Linux http://www.rajeevnet.com/linux/bootprofile/ Booting Linux for desired networked environment selected at boot time
Bootprofile clone http://www.tobert.org/unix/index.html written in (bourne|korn|posix) shell (look promesing)
NetEnv http://netenv.sourceforge.net/ Netenv sets up a file containing variable assignments which describe the current environment. This can be used by the PCMCIA setup scheme, e.g. like the one that comes with Debian/GNU Linux and perhaps others.
divine http://www.fefe.de/divine/ divine starts a thread that injects fake arp requests into the network. The thread will try again up to three times, pausing 1 second between retries. If the last try times out again, the thread will print an error message, leave the interface in the original state and exit cleanly.
QuickSwitch http://muthanna.com/quickswitch - Roaming network profiles for Unix/Linux Laptops. QuickSwitch is a utility that lets Linux/Unix laptop users create and use roaming network profiles. Instead of individually reconfiguring the network card, changing DNS entries, hosts files etc. it lets you create one centralized file for all your different profiles. QuickSwitch has been around since early 2000 and is now the most widely used utility of its kind. also a Gnome Tray Applet is here. http://edgesolutions.ca/muthanna.com/quickswitch/quickswitch-gnome.html
Netswitch http://netswitch.sourceforge.net/ is a linux system admin script that 'remembers' several network configurations. Users can switch between network configurations with a simple command-line interface (CLI) command like 'netswitch.pl home' or 'netswitch.pl work'"
