Release and Renew DHCP


I am trying to find the proper command to releaese and renew my ip address similar to ipconfig /release and ipconfig /renew in Windows.

I tried ifconfig eth1 down and ifconfig eth1 up

This brings the interface down then up, but it did not seem to pull a dhcp config properly. When it came back up I could not access resources.

dhcpcd -k eth? should release
dhcpcd -n eth? should renew

I just use dhcpcd eth0 and it always works..

Wait a minute. I screwed up the command. This time I typed it correctly and it worked exactly how I wanted.

dhcpcd eth1 -k
dhcpcd eth1 -n

Thanks
