     ifconfig — configure network interfaces


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


     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.


     -a, --all
             Display all available interfaces.

     -A, --address addr
             Set the interface address to addr.

     -B, --broadcast addr

     -b, --brdaddr addr
             Set the broadcast address to addr.

     -d, --dstaddr addr

     -p, --peer addr
             Set the destination (peer) address to addr.

     --up    Activate the interface (default if address is given).

     --down  Shut the interface down.

     -F, --flags flag,[flag ...]
             Set the interface flags.

     -i, --interface name
             Configure the network interface name.

     -l, --list
             List the available or selected interfaces.

     -m, --netmask mask
             Set the netmask to mask.

     --metric n
             Set the interface metric to n.

     -M, --mtu n
             Set the interface MTU to n.

     --format format
             Select the output format; set to help for information.

     -s, --short
             Short output format.

     -v, --verbose
             Output information when configuring the interface.

     -?, --help

             Give a short usage message.

     -V, --version
             Print program version.

     Linux-specific options:

     -T, --txqlen n
             Set the transmit queue length to n.
