Debian: You know the command, but don't know the package
I have set up a minimal (by packages) Debian machine. I want to run the command "ip", as in:
#ip link show
My research shows that this command is all about IPv4. (I am wanting to follow the FireHOL documentation). I have tried everywhere to work out which package this command might be in. One of the first things I did was to install the iptables package, but I still only get this response from whereis:
# whereis ip
Thus my simple question is - how do I find out the name of a package given the name of a command? I have done searches based on description from packages.debian.org, and come up with a URL for the package libnetwork-ipv4addr-perl, but I don't think I got to the right place.
Often dselect turns something up for me, but this didn't help either.
Also if anyone knows the name of the package that would be great!
