Bring down network & restart


In order to reset the Receive window under a 2.4.x
kernel, apparently flushing must be enabled with:

echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/route/flush

and the network must be brought down and restarted.

The recommended procedure in Mandrake is:

sysctl -p
/etc/init.d/network restart

but it is unclear to me how this should be done in
Slackware 8.0.

Can anyone shed any light on this problem?

I don't know if it gives you the desired result. I've tried and no visible result

Shut down every interface, inclusive lo:
(for my machine)
# ifconfig eth0:0 down
# ifconfig eth0 down
# ifconfig lo down

then, run:
# /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1
