The file rc.conf contains descriptive information about the local host name, configuration details for any potential network interfaces and which services should be started up at system initial boot time. In new installations, the '''rc.conf''' file is generally initialized by the system installation utility.

The /etc/rc.conf file is included from the file /etc/defaults/rc.conf, which specifies the default settings for all the available options. Options need only be specified in /etc/rc.conf when the system administrator wishes to override these defaults.
