ifcfg - simplistic script which replaces ifconfig IP management
ifcfg [ DEVICE ] [ command ] ADDRESS [ PEER ]
This manual page documents briefly the ifcfg command.
This is a simplistic script replacing one option of ifconfig , namely, IP address management. It not only adds addresses, but also carries out Duplicate Address Detection RFC-DHCP, sends unsolicited ARP to update the caches of other hosts sharing the interface, adds some control routes and restarts Router Discovery when it is necessary.
This script is not suitable for use with IPv6.
IP Command reference ip-cref.ps
