Basic Network Setup on an AIX system


Here is an excerpt from AIX Certification Study Guide for AIX 5L(December 2002):

Use command smitty tcpip for basic settings – smitty will use mktcpip. Sets properties such as host name, IP address, nameserver, default gateway, subnetmask etc.

Or you can you mktcpip from the command line  – like in this example:
mktcpip -h HOSTNAME -a IPaddress -m NETMASK -i IF(eg. en0) \
-n NAMESERVER -d DOMAIN -g GATEWAY -s -C 0 -A no

-s        starts tcpip daemon
-C        Cost of using the selected interface type
-A        Active dead gateway detection: no (the default), dead gateway detection remains in passive mode.
