NAME

       ifreload - reload network interface configuration

SYNOPSIS

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

DESCRIPTION

          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.

OPTIONS

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

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

          -v, --verbose
                 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

EXAMPLES

          # 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
