Mandrake 9.0 Network Disbale???
 
G'day

I am running Mandrake 9.0 I was on a Redhat 9.0 machine the other day which had a GUI way of enabling and disabling the network

(which is great cos I don't want my ADSL on all the time)

Is there a way in Mandrake 9.0 to enable and Disable the network via the GUI ( KDE) or an easy command to disable and enable the network????

Cheers
Zarik

If you go into the mandrake control centre>drakeconnect, it should start the window that tells you that it is "testing your connection".

After a short while, it should change status to tell you that you are "connected". There should also be a button marked "disconnect", click on that and it should disconnect, which changes the status to disconnected and the same button should show you "connect" etc etc.

Ummm another question
When I did the about a util called Networking Monitoring came up how can I access this util via the gui or command line?
I have looked everywhere for it.

Dunno, whenever that "pops up" I just close the main connection window and minimise the network monitoring window box.

I could never find it either :D
