       ifreload - reload network interface configuration


          ifreload [-h] (-a|-c) [-v] [-d] [-f] [-n]


          reloads network interfaces(5) file /etc/network/interfaces.

          Runs ifdown on interfaces that were removed from the file and subsequently runs ifup on
          all interfaces.

          When removing an interface (iface section) from the interfaces file  please  make  sure
          all  its  references  are removed as well. Similarly when renaming an interface, please
          make sure all references to the interface are changed to  the  new  name.  Renaming  an
          interface in the interfaces file results in ifdown of the old and ifup of the interface
          with the new name.

          If you do not wish to execute down on any interfaces, but only up  on  interfaces  that
          were already up, please see the --currently-up option below.


          -h, --help
                 show this help message and exit

          -a, --all
                 process all interfaces marked "auto"

          -v, --verbose

          -d, --debug
                 output debug info

          -f, --force
                 force run all operations

          -c, --currently-up
                 only reload auto and other interfaces that are currently up. This can be used as
                 a non-disruptive alternative to -a because it will not down any interfaces

          -X EXCLUDEPATS, --exclude EXCLUDEPATS
                 Exclude interfaces from the list of interfaces to operate on. Can  be  specified
                 multiple times


          # reload all auto interfaces in interfaces(5) file

          ifreload -a

          # reload all interfaces using service command

          service networking reload

          # reload all currently up interfaces without bringing any interfaces down

          service networking reload-currently-up
