Command-line control of network activation and deactivation

Posted 12-12-2016 at 12:33 PM by flshope

It took me a while to find this, so I thought I would post it. After searching through various sources, I finally took the time to read all of the hundred or so lines you get from 'apropos network'.

A terminal command to activate or deactive networking is

Code:
nmcli networking on
nmcli networking off
Under Ubuntu I usually depend on a networking control icon that appears on the tool bar of the indicator applet, but sometimes the icon is missing. I...

Network Firewall Auditor and Checker for Linux

Posted 12-07-2011 at 11:54 AM by sudhagud

On a day to day work load, starting one with simple task to complex multiple tasks, IT System Administrators and all other personnel who look after the IT Data Centre and IT Infrastructure, sometimes find that they have to run a multiple command set, that to for simple information. In recent times the Desktop GUI and the relative backend tools that make the Linux System have advanced well, but for remote system administration, unlike Windows where RDT can be used, Sysadmin's prefer a shell and a...

Configuring the Ethernet NIC in CentOS 6 (RHEL 6, Scientific Linux 6)

Take a look at your ifcfg-ethX configuration file under /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts directory (substitute ethX with your network interface, e.g. eth0). In my case, "Minimal" install of CentOS 6 configured the ethernet interface not to start automatically (line ONBOOT="no") and to rely on NetworkManager (NM_Controlled="yes"). This is odd, as NetworkManager is not installed by default. Thus, even though the system is in runlevel 3 and you should have networking (if...

Puppy Wins the Printing Lottery

Posted 11-22-2009 at 07:51 PM by SrDorothy

The last time I posted about printing I thought my problems were solved with 2 Puppy boxes telling the Mepis box where the printer was...

Installing Slackware 12.2 On An Old Dell Laptop - Part VII

Posted 11-22-2009 at 02:40 PM by stuartd

I guess this is an end to this blog.

In the end I gave up on Slackware 12.2 and downloaded and installed Slackware 13. It works and has got the network.

I really don't know what was happening with 12.2 and I'm disappointed to have had to give up, but I have a lot of studying to do and can't spare the time to work at making the laptop work.

What I miss is learning how that interface stuff works at a fundamental level because I would like to understand...
