ifcfg [ DEVICE ] [ command ] ADDRESS [ PEER ] DESCRIPTION
This manual page documents briefly the ifcfg command. This is a simplistic script replacing one option of ifconfig , namely, IP address management. It not only adds addresses, but also carries out Duplicate Address Detection RFC-DHCP, sends unsolicited ARP to update the caches of other hosts sharing the interface, adds some con- trol routes and restarts Router Discovery when it is necessary. IFCONFIG - COMMAND SYNTAX DEVICE - it may have alias, suffix, separated by colon. command - add, delete or stop. ADDRESS - optionally followed by prefix length. peer - optional peer address for pointpoint interfaces. NOTES
This script is not suitable for use with IPv6. SEE ALSO

This is the default action. --down Bring the connection down. --status Report status of the connection. -i, --ifcfg=NAME Specify the ifcfg file to use. This option is mandatory. -p, --provider=NAME Specify the provider file to use. --detach Detach from the controlling terminal.
