Starting Network Connection?


When I had RH9 and using Gnome there was a network program that would allow me to restart my DSL connection when i forgot to turn on my router or modem. When i forget to I have to reboot to go online, Im using KDE now and I am wondering How i can start my connection without having to reboot. Thanks

Hi,

In Red Hat 9:

From the command line you can start a modem by typing "/sbin/ifup ppp0" without the quotes.

For a NIC, the command would be "/sbin/ifup eth0"

Both of these assuming that you only have one of each of these devices installed.

You can also activate these devices through a GUI by typing "neat" from the command line. Select the device from the list, highlight it and then click on "activate."

Things changed a bit in Fedora Core 1, but for RH9, these will work.

I can't tell you anything much about KDE (don't use it) and am more of a bash person than a GUI person anyway, so there may be some other way of doing this that is more to your liking.

HTH

Im not using RH anymore, Slack now, but i would think that whatever starts the netcard or the actual connection would be the same but i dont have a ifup in my /sbin directory.

Not sure if the paths are the same but you may be able to use

/etc/init.d/network restart
