    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.
