NAME

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

DESCRIPTION
       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
				       bge0).

       -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.

NOTES
       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.
