Question Establishing an ethernet connection

First of all, I searched this forum for the information but looks like I can't find any.

I'm interested to know the command for establishing an ethernet connection in Red Hat. It is fairly simple to do it in GUI mode, which you just have to go to System Settings > Network > New Device Type > Forward (Ethernet Connection) > Forward (Choose the right network card) > Forward (Automatically optain IP address with dhcp) > Finish

I'm interested to add this again in the terminal mode, without going to the GUI mode again. Anyone here can help me?

Thanks in advance

Hi Markus,
Thanks for the input. Anyways, I think you misunderstood my post. I'm asking for the command to configure a new ethernet network.

Any idea? Thanks.
