Chapter 4

NWAM Profile Configuration (Tasks)

This chapter describes the NWAM profile configuration tasks that you can perform by using the netcfg command. These configuration tasks include creating, modifying, and destroying profiles, as well as managing the various SMF services that control the NWAM configuration. This chapter describes how to use the netcfg command in both interactive mode and command-line mode.

The following topics are covered in this chapter:

For information about displaying profile states, activating and deactivating profiles, and managing known wireless networks by using the netadm command, see Chapter 5, NWAM Profile Administration (Tasks).

For information about how to interact with NWAM and how to manage your network configuration from the desktop, see Chapter 6, About the NWAM Graphical User Interface.

For an introduction to NWAM, see Chapter 2, Introduction to NWAM.

For detailed overview information about NWAM, including a description of the netcfg user interface modes, see Chapter 3, NWAM Configuration and Administration (Overview).
