    Command:

    nameif

    
    
    
    

    SYNOPSIS

           nameif [-c configfile] [-s]
           nameif [-c configfile] [-s] {interface macaddress}
    
    
    

    NOTE

           This  program  is  obsolete. For replacement check ip link.  This func-
           tionality is also much better provided by udev methods.
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           nameif renames network interfaces based on mac addresses. When no argu-
           ments  are  given  /etc/mactab  is  read.  Each line  of it contains an
           interface name and a Ethernet MAC address. Comments are allowed  start-
           ing with #.  Otherwise the interfaces specified on the command line are
           processed.  nameif looks for the interface with the given  MAC  address
           and renames it to the name given.
    
           When the -s argument is given all error messages go to the syslog.
    
           When  the  -c  argument  is  given  with  a file name that file is read
           instead of /etc/mactab.
    
    
    

    NOTES

           nameif should be run before the interface is up, otherwise it'll  fail.
