|Oracle Solaris Administration: Network Interfaces and Network Virtualization Oracle Solaris 11 Information Library|
The Network Auto-Magic (NWAM) feature simplifies basic network configuration by automatically addressing basic Ethernet and WiFi configurations, such as connecting to your wired or wireless network at startup and displaying notifications about the status of your currently active network connection from the desktop. NWAM is also designed to simplify some of the more complex networking tasks, such as the creation and management of system-wide network profiles, for example, the configuration of naming services, IP Filter, and IP Security (IPsec), all of which are features of Oracle Solaris.
This chapter covers the following topics:
This chapter is intended for users and system administrators who have an understanding of basic networking concepts, as well as some experience managing network configuration by using traditional networking tools and commands. If you are ready to use NWAM to manage your network configuration, skip to Chapter 4, NWAM Profile Configuration (Tasks).
