NAME
       ifcfg - simplistic script which replaces ifconfig IP management

SYNOPSIS
       ifcfg [ DEVICE ] [ command ] ADDRESS [ PEER ]

DESCRIPTION
       This manual page documents briefly the ifcfg command.

       This is a simplistic script replacing one option of ifconfig , namely,
       IP address management. It not only adds addresses, but also carries out
       Duplicate Address Detection RFC-DHCP, sends unsolicited ARP to update
       the caches of other hosts sharing the interface, adds some control
       routes and restarts Router Discovery when it is necessary.

IFCONFIG - COMMAND SYNTAX
       DEVICE - it may have alias, suffix, separated by colon.

       command
              - add, delete or stop.

       ADDRESS
              - optionally followed by prefix length.

       peer   - optional peer address for pointpoint interfaces.

NOTES
       This script is not suitable for use with IPv6.
