Need to change IP address in FreeBSD

Issue: A change of IP address is needed in FreeBSD.

Solution: If you do not have the root password boot into Single User mode [option 4]. Procced to step 1.

If you have the root password procced to step 2.

1. mount -o (if you get a read-only error, you will have to run fschk -y)

2. vi /etc/rc.conf (If vi is unavailable use ee)

at this point simply edit the IP Address lines that will need to be corrected.
