rcinet - Restarts, starts, or stops Internet network services on the system
You must specify one of the following options with the rcinet command:
Restarts the network on the system.
Starts the network on the system.
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.
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.
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
The rcinet script prints an error message to stderr if the network is not
configured on the system.
The network shell scripts are located in /sbin/init.d with symbolic links
in /sbin/rc0.d and /sbin/rc3.d.
