NAME

       ifconfig - configure network interfaces

SYNOPSIS

       ifconfig  [option...]   name  [addr]  [broadcast  brdaddr]  [pointopoint|dstaddr  dstaddr]
       [netmask mask] [ether|hwaddr|lladdr macaddr] [metric n] [mtu n] [txqueuelen  n]  [up|down]
       [flags]

DESCRIPTION

       Configure network interfaces.

       Mandatory  or  optional  arguments  to long options are also mandatory or optional for any
       corresponding short options.

       Known flags are: allmulti, arp, automedia, broadcast, debug, dynamic,  master,  multicast,
       pointopoint,  portsel,  promisc, slave, trailers, up.  Prepending no to any of these flags
       will negate their effect.
