Removing POINTOPOINT setting on NIC

Due to butterfingers I managed to mis-type an ifconfig command and have configured my lan1 as a PPP interface.

Aside from a reboot, is there any way to undo this? No ifconfig combination i've tried will remove the PPP designation.

cheers,
neil.

Hi Neil, have you tried typing your command with "down" at the end of the line instead of "up" and then re-typing with your correct lan address

Yep, tried all combinations. Just doesn't seem to be a "re-initialise" option. I even tried resetting and self-testing the card via lanadmin but that didn't help either.

Haven't found any other info around this online...maybe it's an inherent bug in HP-UX networking?

cheers,
neil.

Does anyone know of a workaround for this?
