help with understanding /ect/init.d/network script
This question is to enlighten me on the network script inside of the init.d folder.
I am currently using Ubuntu 5.10. While trying to exercise my skillz with Linux I tried to use the stop command with the /etc/init.d/network script. As I anticipated the nic device (eth0) would not longer communicate. I then proceeded to try using the start command to start the network service back up. When doing this I realized that the eth0 was not longer communicating to the rest of the network. commands like [ifconfig eth0 up], and route -n (which displayed nothing). The only way that I could get my nic card working again was to restart the computer.
can someone help, or at least point me in a direction of a good tutorial
