Administering network selection
In order for network applications
to be portable to different environments,
the application process must have
a standard interface into
the various transport providers
available in any current environment.
Network selection provides
a simple and consistent interface
that allows user applications to select
networks (at the transport level),
enabling applications to be
protocol- and media-independent.
UnixWare 7 Networking Services applications
that allow a user to influence the choice of transports
use the standard interface outlined here.
Tasks associated with
network selection administration
are performed by entering shell commands on the command line.
Where these commands
involve editing sensitive system files,
be sure to keep a backup copy of the file you are editing.
When you finish editing the file, use
on the edited file and the backup copy
to verify that only the changes you want have been made.
If you want to add networks to the network configuration database,
edit /etc/netconfig and add the appropriate entries.
To remove networks from the network configuration database,
edit /etc/netconfig and delete the appropriate entries.
