How to: Easily Configure TCP/IP on Your AIX System

An IBM Redpaper publication



Abstract

With AIX, you can configure your TCP/IP network with a single
command, mktcpip. On other systems, setting up TCP/IP might involve
creating and editing multiple files, executing a number of commands, setting
various variables, locating values for persistence after reboot, and starting
several daemons. The mktcpip command completes all the necessary TCP/IP
configuration tasks for a typical system. The process is even easier when you
use the System Management Interface Tool (SMIT) to prompt you for all
necessary parameters to configure your network.
