       network-admin - Basic administration of network interfaces.

       network-admin [--configure=INTERFACE] [--configure-type=TYPE] [gnome-std-options]

       network-admin enumerates the interfaces available to the user and provides a mechanism for
       configuring these interfaces as static-IP or DHCP. It's	also  possible	to  select  which
       interfaces should be enabled on boot.

       network-admin  also allows you configure the systems hostname, DNS options and hosts using
       the user interface.

       The following options are supported:

       -c, --configure=INTERFACE       Configure a  specific  network  interface  (e.g.  ath0  or

       -t, --configure-type=TYPE       Configure  the  first network interface of a specific type
				       (e.g. ethernet or wireless).

       gnome-std-options	       Standard options available for use with most GNOME  appli-
				       cations. See gnome-std-options(5) for more information.

       Example 1: Running the main application.

       example% network-admin

       Example 2: Configuring the ath0 network interface.

       example% network-admin --configure=ath0

       Example 3: Configuring the first ethernet interface.

       example% network-admin --configure-type=ethernet

       The following exit values are returned:

       0	Application exited successfully

       >0	Application exited with failure

       The following files are used by this application:

       /usr/bin/network-admin	       Executable for network interface configuration.

       /etc/inet/gnome-system-tools    Storage	location for network configuration files when not
				       active on boot.

				       Backup directory for files that are modified.

				       Where "Location" profiles are stored.

				       Debug logs can be found under here.

       This  tool  can	only be used to manage physical network devices as returned by the "dladm
       show-dev" command, it does not support configuration of more complex configurations.

       There is currently no support for enterprise name services such as YP/NIS, NIS+	or  LDAP.
       There is also no support for anything but the global zone.
