16 16
17 Configure network interface. 17 Display or configure network interface.
18 18
19 [add ADDRESS[/PREFIXLEN]] 19 With no arguments, display active interfaces. First argument is interface
20 [del ADDRESS[/PREFIXLEN]] 20 to operate on, one argument by itself displays that interface.
21 [[-]broadcast [ADDRESS]] [[-]pointopoint [ADDRESS]] 21
22 [netmask ADDRESS] [dstaddr ADDRESS] 22 -a Show all interfaces, not just active ones
23 [outfill NN] [keepalive NN] 23
24 [hw ether|infiniband ADDRESS] [metric NN] [mtu NN] 24 Additional arguments are actions to perform on the interface:
25 [[-]trailers] [[-]arp] [[-]allmulti] 25
26 [multicast] [[-]promisc] [txqueuelen NN] [[-]dynamic] 26 ADDRESS[/NETMASK] - set IPv4 address (1.2.3.4/5)
27 [mem_start NN] [io_addr NN] [irq NN] 27 default - unset ipv4 address
28 [up|down] ... 28 add|del ADDRESS[/PREFIXLEN] - add/remove IPv6 address (1111::8888/128)
29 up - enable interface
30 down - disable interface
31
32 netmask|broadcast|pointopoint ADDRESS - set more IPv4 characteristics
33 hw ether|infiniband ADDRESS - set LAN hardware address (AA:BB:CC...)
34 txqueuelen LEN - number of buffered packets before output blocks
35 mtu LEN - size of outgoing packets (Maximum Transmission Unit)
36
37 Flags you can set on an interface (or -remove by prefixing with -):
38 arp - don't use Address Resolution Protocol to map LAN routes
39 promisc - don't discard packets that aren't to this LAN hardware address
40 multicast - force interface into multicast mode if the driver doesn't
41 allmulti - promisc for multicast packets
42
43 Obsolete fields included for historical purposes:
44 irq|io_addr|mem_start ADDR - micromanage obsolete hardware
45 outfill|keepalive INTEGER - SLIP analog dialup line quality monitoring
46 metric INTEGER - added to Linux 0.9.10 with comment "never used", still true
