Chapter 8

Administering a TCP/IP Network (Tasks)

This chapter contains tasks for administering a TCP/IP network. The following topics are covered:

Note - To monitor network interfaces, see Monitoring the Interface Configuration With the ifconfig Command.

The tasks assume that you have an operational TCP/IP network at your site, either IPv4-only or dual-stack IPv4/IPv6. If you want to implement IPv6 at your site but have not done so, refer to following chapters for more information:
