Thanks for the quick answer.

I obivously don't have a good overview of situations where a reboot is
required. I have a quad nic installed on the machine (identified as
OPT1-4) who also has an integrated dual nic. I remember that I had to
reboot when I was configuring those OPT interfaces - maybe it just was
the first time I enabled those, because a change of IP on those
doesn't require a reboot now.

Anyway, with my mentioned interfaces, does the LAN-ip and
config-restore still uniquely qualify for reboot, or are there more

a WRAP only takes about 20 to 40 seconds (depending on hardwarerevision, the newer boards have DMA
support for the CF-card). Other commercial systems even need more time to apply settings than m0n0
to boot up.
