ifconfig , ifdown, ifup


hi there

the ethernet wire was out of the pc when the system started.

Code:
#ifconfig
#ifconfig -a
i did not get any ip for eth0.
i plug the cable into the pc

Code:
#ifdown eth0
#ifup eth0
now the ip address is assigned to eth0

Question is : IS this right way to bring ethernet down and then bring up in case of any problem with NIC?

thanks

Yes, that's correct. You can also restart the network service which will restart all the services/interfaces.

/etc/init.d/network restart
