Help on ip


In windows I can use this (ipconfigure......)command to check my computer ip address, but in Fedora I did not know how to do it. So Could anyone tell me which command to use for checking the ip adress.

Try "ifconfig".

"route" can be useful also when connecting on multiple networks.

They're in /sbin. There is no path by default pointing there for default users, though any user can run these commands to see their output. I personally always add a path there.

Also try "redhat-config-network" for graphical interface.

There are many useful redhat-xyz tools in /usr/bin. For example, redhat-config-date for changing the system date easily and syncing on time servers.

Look in /etc/modules.conf to know what driver is bound to your network adapter. For example:
alias eth0 e100

Try lsmod to see what drivers are loaded in memory. Your ethernet driver should obviously be loaded (Used by 1).

I hope that helps!
