How to Remove an Interface From a Group

  1. Become superuser.

  2. On a command line, type the following command.

    # ifconfig interface-name group ""

    The quotation marks indicate a null string.

For example, to remove hme0 from the group test, you type the following command:

# ifconfig hme0 group ""
	# ifconfig hme0
	hme0: flags=9000843<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,MULTICAST,IPv4> mtu 1500
        	index 2 inet netmask ffffff00 broadcast
	# ifconfig hme0 inet6
	hme0: flags=a000841<UP,RUNNING,MULTICAST,IPv6> mtu 1500 index 2
        	inet6 fe80::a00:20ff:feb9:19fa/10
