|Connecting Systems Using Reactive Network Configuration in Oracle Solaris 11.1 Oracle Solaris 11.1 Information Library|
This chapter describes profile-based network configuration tasks that you can perform to configure reactive network on your system by using the netcfg command in either interactive mode or command-line mode. These configuration tasks include creating user-defined profiles, modifying user-defined profiles, as well as managing the various SMF services that control the system network configuration.
Although the primary focus of this chapter is on reactive profiles, the netcfg command also includes limited features related to fixed profiles, primarily for viewing fixed profiles and their properties. For more information, see Listing All of the Profile Configuration Information on a System.
The following topics are covered in this chapter:
For information about switching network configuration, displaying profile states, exporting and restoring profiles, removing profiles, and managing known wireless networks, see Chapter 3, Administering Your Reactive Network Configuration (Tasks).
For information about how to interact with the system network and to manage your network configuration from the desktop, see Chapter 4, Using the Network Administration Graphical User Interface.
For overview information about reactive network configuration, see Chapter 1, Reactive Network Configuration (Overview).
