Bring Network Up Or Down

This page was last updated on July 18, 2009.

You can use ifup and ifdown to bring the network up or down. These commands will use the settings in /etc/network/interfaces for the specified device.

  • Example bringing the network up:
  • ifup eth0
  • Example bringing the network down:
  • ifdown eth0

See man ifup for command line arguments.

Obligatory Happy Ending

And they all lived happily ever after. The end.
