NAME

  rcinet - Restarts, starts, or	stops Internet network services	on the system

SYNOPSIS

  /usr/sbin/rcinet option

OPTIONS

  You must specify one of the following	options	with the rcinet	command:

  restart
      Restarts the network on the system.

  start
      Starts the network on the	system.

  stop
      Stops the	network	on the system.

  You can restrict the restart,	start, or stop operation to either IPv4	or
  IPv6 networks	by specifying inet or inet6, respectively, as the second
  parameter.  By default, the script assumes both IPv4 and IPv6.

DESCRIPTION

  The rcinet script allows system administrators to restart, start, or stop
  the Internet network services	on the system while it is running in mul-
  tiuser mode by using one of the options.

RESTRICTIONS

  Superuser privilege is required.

  Warn users that the system is	being removed from the network.

  File systems that were not mounted using the /etc/fstab file or the auto-
  mount	command	must be	unmounted with the umount command. You must remount
  these	file systems using the mount command after the network is started on
  your system.

ERRORS

  The rcinet script prints an error message to stderr if the network is	not
  configured on	the system.








FILES

  The network shell scripts are	located	in /sbin/init.d	with symbolic links
  in /sbin/rc0.d and /sbin/rc3.d.
