Network Auto-Magic

Network Auto-Magic (NWAM) is a feature of Oracle Solaris that automates the basic network configuration of your system. The topics that are covered in these chapters describe components of the NWAM architecture and how these components work together to effect automated network configuration on your Oracle Solaris system.

This documentation primarily focuses on how to manage your network configuration by using the NWAM command-line utilities. Also described is basic information about how to use the NWAM graphical user interface (GUI) to view and monitor the status of your network, as well as interact with NWAM from the desktop. Detailed instructions on monitoring and managing your network configuration by using the NWAM GUI can be found in the online help.
