Network Linux Commands
Simple Linux commands that are used in network administration are given below. This is specially for the beginners not for advanced users, as I think it is “what’s new” type of thing for them.
- netstat: It displays the summary of network sockets and connections.
- nslookup: Checks the domain name and IP information of a server
- ping: Sends special test packs to a server to check if it is responding properly
- route: Lists the routing tables for your server
- traceroute: Traces the existing network routing for a remote or local server
- dig: DNS lookup utility
- ftp: Enable ftp access to another server
- w: Shows who is currently logged in and from where
- who: Shows who is on the server in the shell
- hostname: Tells the user the hostname they are logged into
- whois:Used to look up the contact information from the “whois” databases.
