On FreeBSD, dhclient can be enabled to automatically handle the
203
link status of the network card. Normally polling is done every
204
five seconds. The polling interval can be set using the
205
.B -i
206
flag, followed by the numbers of seconds. Minimum is one second.

The DHCP client will normally run in the foreground until it has
180 209
configured an interface, and then will revert to running in the
181 210
background.   To run force dhclient to always run as a foreground

.B -w

flag can be used to cause the client not to exit when it doesn't find

any such interfaces.   The

271
.B omshell (1)
239 272
program can then be used to notify the client when a network interface
240 273
has been added or removed, so that the client can attempt to configure an IP
241 274
address on that interface.
