Neat trick when making outside IP changes

The guy I'm working with for our router changes has a neat trick for insurance against a bad IP change.

Run this command prior to making the IP change on your internet-side interface:

reload -n XX (where XX is the amount of time to hold the reload)

Then run your IP change commands.

If you make a mistake, or have bad info, the router reboots itself after XX time, clearing the bad commands!

Clever use of the reload command - there's something you wouldn't learn in school!
