The networksetup command is used to configure network settings typically configured in the System Preferences application. The networksetup command requires at least "admin" privileges to run. Most of the set commands require "root" privileges to run. Any flag that takes a password will accept "-" in place of the password to indicate it should read the password from stdin. A list of flags and their descriptions: -listnetworkserviceorder Displays a list of network services in the order they are contacted for a connection, along with the corresponding port and device for each. An asterisk (*) next to a service means the service is inactive. -listallnetworkservices Displays a list of all the network services on the server's hardware ports. An asterisk (*) denotes that a network service is dis- abled. -listallhardwareports Displays list of hardware ports with corresponding device name and ethernet address. -detectnewhardware Detects new network hardware and creates a default network service on the hardware. -getmacaddress hardwareport Displays ethernet (or Wi-Fi) address for hardwareport or device specified. -getcomputername Displays the computer name. -setcomputername computername Sets computer name to <computername>. This name is used by AFP. -getinfo networkservice Displays the IP address, subnet mask, router, and hardware address for the <networkservice> that you specify. -setmanual networkservice ip subnet router Set the TCP/IP configuration for <networkservice> to manual with IP address set to <ip>, Subnet Mask set to <subnet>, and Router address set to <router>. -setdhcp networkservice [clientid] Use this command to set the TCP/IP configuration for the specified <networkservice> to use DHCP.
