IPCONFIG(8)									      IPCONFIG(8)

       ipconfig, arpd, rip - Internet configuration and routing

       ip/ipconfig [-abp] [-e etherdev] [-m ip-mask] [ipaddr]

       ip/arpd [-pd] [-e etherdev] [-b bcast-addr]

       ip/rip [-b]

       Ipconfig configures an Internet connection on an Ethernet.  The options are

       a      do not start arpd

       b      do not use BOOTP to discover a gateway address

       p      start arpd in promiscuous mode (see below)

       e      use the Ethernet mounted at /net/etherdev

       m      set the network mask to ip-mask

       If  ipaddr  is  specified  on the command line, use that instead of one found in the local
       database or via the BOOTP protocol.

       Arpd performs the Internet Address Resolution  Protocol,  translating  Internet	addresses
       into Ethernet addresses.  It is normally started by ipconfig.  The options are

       d      print debugging to standard output

       p      (promiscuous)  answer  ARP  requests for any recognized machine.	The default is to
	      answer just for the machine running arpd.

       e      use the Ethernet mounted at /net/etherdev

       b      use the IP broadcast address bcast-addr instead of the correct one.

       Rip runs the routing protocol RIP.  It listens for RIP packets on connected  networks  and
       updates	the  kernel  routing tables.  The only option, -b, broadcasts routing information
       onto the networks.
