Hi Remy,

Thanks for the reply. This was just a trivial example, but yes - I  
have it set up as nge1, as it stands, as this is the particular  
interface I use for filesharing tasks.

I've also tried specifying an IP address and mask with the interfaces  
= directive, to no avail.

Any extra thoughts?

Thanks for your time.
