16DESCRIPTION
17 The ifup and ifdown commands may be used to configure
18 (or, respectively, deconfigure) a network interface based
19 on interface definitions in the file
20 /etc/sysconfig/ifconfig.IFACE.

78NOTES
79 The program does not configure network interfaces direct-
80 ly. It runs scripts defined by the SERVICE variable in
81 the network configuration file.
82
83 The configuration files must have the following environ-
84 ment variables set:
85
86 IFACE - The interface to configure, e.g. eth0. It must
87 be available in /sys/class/net.
88
89 SERVICE - The service script to run to bring up the inter-
90 face. Standard services are ipv4-static and
91 ipv4-static-route. Other services such as dhcp
92 or bridge may be installed. This value may
93 be a list of services when the interface is a
94 compound device such as a bridge.
95
96 ONBOOT - If set to 'yes', the specified interface is
97 configured by the netowrk boot script.
98
99 GATEWAY - The default IP address to use for routing if
100 the destination IP address is not in a static
101 route or on a local network, e.g., 192.168.1.1.
102 For secondary IP addresses on an interface, this
103 parameter should not be specified. If the service
104 is ipv4-static-route, this parameter must NOT
105 be set.
106
107 STATIC_GATEWAY - The default IP address to use for routing
108 when setting a static routing address.
109
110 INTERFACE_COMPONENTS - A list of component interfaces
111 only needed for a compound device such as a bridge.
112 This list is normally a single value, e.g. eth0,
113 for use with a virtual host such as kvm.
114
115 Other paramters that are service specific include:
116
117 ipv4-static
118
119 IP - The IP address of the interface,
120 e.g. 192.168.1.2.
121
122 PREFIX - The number of bits that specify the network
123 number of the interface. The default, if not
124 specified, is 24.
125
126 LABEL - The label to be assigned to the interface.
127 This is normally specified for assigning
128 additional IP addresses to a network
129 device. Example: eth0:2 (optional)
130
131 BROADCAST - The brodcast address for this interface,
132 e.g 192.168.1.255. If not specified,
133 the broadcast address will be calculated
134 from the IP and PREFIX.
135
136 ipv4-static-route
137
138 TYPE - The type of route, typically 'default',
139 'network', 'or host'.
140
141 IP - The IP address for a network or host, if the
142 TYPE is not 'default'.
143
144 PREFIX - The prefix for the associated IP address.
145
146 STATIC_GATEWAY - The IP address for a network route.
147
148 SOURCE - The source IP address to prefer when sending
149 to the destinations covered by the specified
150 route. (optional)
151
152 dhcp/dhclient
153
154 DHCP_START - Optional parameters to pass to the dhcp client
155 at startup.
156
157 DHCP_STOP - Optional paremeters to pass to the dhcp client
158 at shutdown.
159
160 PRINTIP - Flag to print the dhcp address to stdout
161
162 PRINTALL - Flag to print all obtained dhcp data to stdout
163
164 bridge
165
166 IP_FORWARD - An optional flag to enable the system to forward
167 inbound IP packets received by one interface to
168 another outbound interface.
169
170 STP - Set bridge spanning tree protocol. Default is no.
