ifconfig - configure a TCP/IP device
ifconfig [-I ip-device] [-h ipaddr] [-n netmask] [-m mtu] [-iva]
Ifconfig initializes a TCP/IP device setting the IP address and/or
netmask. It will report the address and netmask set. This command may
be used if the system has not been configured properly yet. It is only
used at boot time to set a fixed address for a system without a physical
ethernet. Normally the inet task will find it out by itself from the
-h The decimal TCP/IP address to set.
-n The netmask to set.
-m The mtu to set. (Minix-vmd only.)
-i Don't set the IP address or netmask if already set. This way
ifconfig cannot interfere if the numbers have been found out by
-v Report IP address and netmask. This is the default action if there
are no other options.
-a Report the IP addresses and netmasks of all configured interfaces.
