I've set up my computer fairly well, but I've one little problem. It would appear that sysctl.conf resets itself to
which I reset it to every time I see this. I haven't managed to see /when/ it does this (on a cold system cycle?), but to fix it, I change the two values, and then do a shutdown -r now, and it comes up pingable again.
Why is this resetting itself? Is there a config file I'm missing?
