For an ethernet configuration using bootp or dhcp, this info is supplied by the bootp/dhcp server and automatically set up by the bootp/dhcp client. For most ppp connections, pppd gets the information and sets up the networking, but sometimes this is configured statically in the pppd config files (pppconfig really helps here). There are other situations. To manupilate the routing table, look into the route command. To manipulate the ip address, broadcast address, netmask, and such, look into ipconfig. For pppd/dhcp/whatever if you use them, look into the docs for those programs. If you use /etc/network/interfaces, look at the docs for that file and the ifup and ifdown commands. -- finger for GPG public key.
