Name

netcfgd - network configuration management daemon

Synopsis

/lib/inet/netcfgd

Description

netcfgd is a system daemon to manage network configuration. This daemon is started automatically by svc:/network/netcfg:default and should not be invoked directly. It does not constitute a programming interface.

netcfgd manages access to a network configuration repository, insuring that readers and writers have the appropriate authorizations. The required authorizations vary, depending on the portion of the database being accessed.
