A quick note for me to remind myself how to stop/start network service on FreeBSD (13.0).

To stop or start, run one of the following commands:

# service netif stop
# service netif start

To restart, just replace stop or start with restart:

# service netif restart

I also just found out that the above commands will nto restarting the routing service, as they only stop/start/restart network.

To restart the routing service on FreeBSD, run:

# service routing restart

More information about this can be found at [1], where I had this informaiton from.
