Question alias question


(OS) RH 7.3

ok I make a alias for my eth0 connection it went like this.

alias up='ifup eth0' and alias dn='ifdown eth0'

after I made them I checked them to see if they worked, they did.
then I closed that konsole and reopened another and retried the commands but it says "command not found" did I need to do something else to save the alias?

Thanks again LQ

Did you add the aliases to your ~/.bashrc ?

Just the same way you did for aliasing them, put these alias commands in there
