HP-UX equivalent to ifconfig

HP-UX equivalent to ifconfig

HP-UX equivalent to ifconfig

I am new to HP-UX and I was wondering if someone could tell me the HP-UX equivalent to ifconfig?  I have heard of lanscan and lanadmin, but I have never used either of them.  I am basically just looking to find out how many NICs a server has and what their IP address is.



RE: HP-UX equivalent to ifconfig

HP has ifconfig (in fact, the man page for ifconfig says the command was developed by HP and Berkeley). Have you done a man on ifconfig?

RE: HP-UX equivalent to ifconfig

Thanks, bi.  I must have been accidentally typing in the wrong command because I tried it a few times.  Maybe I typed ipconfig instead of ifconfig...who knows!!  



RE: HP-UX equivalent to ifconfig

You could also try the man pages for lanscan and lanadmin

RE: HP-UX equivalent to ifconfig

If u do lanscan then it will show u the no. of lancards attach to the system and if ifconfig <devicename> then ipaddress, netmask and network address will be shown


RE: HP-UX equivalent to ifconfig

You can also cat /etc/rc.config.d/netconf - all the config information is in there for your active devices.

lanscan will show the devices, but not all may be set up (so doing an ifconfig on an unused interface will give you an error):
