Using the Network Administration Graphical User Interface

This chapter provides an introduction to the network administration graphical user interface (formerly known as NWAM GUI) on the Oracle Solaris desktop, which includes a description of the components that make up its network administration GUI. Basic instructions for interacting with reactive network profiles from the desktop, controlling network connections, adding wireless networks, and creating and managing network profiles are also included in this chapter.
