Configuring an IPv4 Network

Network configuration evolves in two stages: assembling the hardware, and then configuring the daemons, files, and services that implement the TCP/IP protocol.

This chapter explains how to configure a network that implements IPv4 addressing and services.

Many of the tasks in this chapter apply to both IPv4-only and IPv6-enabled networks. Tasks that are specific to IPv6 networks are in Chapter 4, Enabling IPv6 on the Network.

Note - Before you configure TCP/IP, review the different planning tasks that are listed in Chapter 1, Planning the Network Deployment. If you are planning to use IPv6 addresses, then refer also to Chapter 2, Considerations When Using IPv6 Addresses.
