If you can do it by hand with ifconfig, you should be able to get
wackamole to do it automatically. If youhave a large flat (no VLAN)
network, I don't see why you'd have a problem.
On the other hand, if the network is segmented, but each machine has a
physical interface on each segment, then it will work fine as well.
This is very similar to the configuration of wackamole on routers.
