Networking in Linux (Mandrake 9.2)


I have done this but have already forgotten where all the configuration files are. What I also need to know is how to renew an IP address, if that is even possible.

Didn't see the Networking forum. Sorry about that.

I don't use mandrake, but in redhat the network interface config files are in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts

Also in redhat to renew an address (using dhcp) you can just do
ifdown eth#
ifup eth#

where # is the number of your device.

yes and that will work with no problems but I'd like to do renew the IP address without rebooting.

Thank you. That's what I was looking for. It worked beautifully as well
