Operating Systems Linux /etc/netmasks equivalent in linux Post 302614737 by bitlord on Wednesday 28th of March 2012 07:24:10 PM
Hello,
I'm a Solaris admin like your self. I don't use DHCP for my servers, I set static IPs. I use the GUI tools below for RHEL, that can be launched from the command line, when I need to do more then just set a static IP.

Use this command if you want to use a X-Window GUI to change the IP address.
Code:
system-config-network

Use this command to launch a utility inside your terminal. In other words this should work on a headless server.
Code:
system-config-network-tui

I hope this helps you out.

Linux equivalent for daemon2

Hi all... In my Unix system a program exists called "daemon2" which is responsible to enqueue program executions.

NAME
netmasks - network mask database SYNOPSIS
/etc/inet/netmasks /etc/netmasks DESCRIPTION
The netmasks file contains network masks used to implement IP subnetting. It supports both standard subnetting as specified in RFC-950 and variable length subnetting as specified in RFC-1519. When using standard subnetting there should be a single line for each network that is subnetted in this file with the network number, any number of SPACE or TAB characters, and the network mask to use on that network. Network numbers and masks may be specified in the conventional IP `.' (dot) notation (like IP host addresses, but with zeroes for the host part). For example, 128.32.0.0 255.255.255.0 can be used to specify that the Class B network 128.32.0.0 should have eight bits of subnet field and eight bits of host field, in addition to the standard sixteen bits in the network field. When using variable length subnetting, the format is identical. However, there should be a line for each subnet with the first field being the subnet and the second field being the netmask that applies to that subnet. The users of the database, such as ifconfig(1M), perform a lookup to find the longest possible matching mask. It is possible to combine the RFC-950 and RFC-1519 form of subnet masks in the net- masks file. For example, 128.32.0.0 255.255.255.0 128.32.27.0 255.255.255.240 128.32.27.16 255.255.255.240 128.32.27.32 255.255.255.240 128.32.27.48 255.255.255.240 128.32.27.64 255.255.255.240 128.32.27.80 255.255.255.240 128.32.27.96 255.255.255.240 128.32.27.112 255.255.255.240 128.32.27.128 255.255.255.240 128.32.27.144 255.255.255.240 128.32.27.160 255.255.255.240 128.32.27.176 255.255.255.240 128.32.27.192 255.255.255.240 128.32.27.208 255.255.255.240 128.32.27.224 255.255.255.240 128.32.27.240 255.255.255.240 128.32.64.0 255.255.255.192 can be used to specify different netmasks in different parts of the 128.32.0.0 Class B network number. Addresses 128.32.27.0 through 128.32.27.255 have a subnet mask with 28 bits in the combined network and subnet fields (often referred to as the subnet field) and 4 bits in the host field. Furthermore, addresses 128.32.64.0 through 128.32.64.63 have a 26 bits in the subnet field. Finally, all other addresses in the range 128.32.0.0 through 128.32.255.255 have a 24 bit subnet field. Invalid entries are ignored. SEE ALSO
