NAME

  inet.local - File to invoke local network commands

DESCRIPTION

  The inet.local file is a file	that is	called by /sbin/init.d/inet after all
  the network interfaces are up	and running, but before	any other network
  services are started.	 The file can contain those commands that pertain to
  the local system.  For example, you could set	the system time	from the
  local	network	at boot	time by	editing	the file and adding a line containing
  the rdate -s command.	 If you	needed to add aliases for existing IP
  addresses, you could add the ifconfig	command	and arguments to this file.

  The inet.local file is a Context-Dependent Symbolic Link (CDSL) and must be
  maintained as	such.  See the System Administration manual for	more informa-
  tion.

FILES

  /etc/inet.local
	     Specifies the command path.
