Anybody know where ifconfig gets the inet addr?
ppp0 Link encap:Point-to-Point Protocol
inet addr:220.127.116.11 P-t-P:18.104.22.168
What sort of interface is it, and how do you bring it up? E. G. if it is a modem
connection to an ISP, the IP address is probably given by the ISP
I did not phrase that question correctly.
I mean, where in the /proc or /sym directories is the IP address stored.
From someplace there ifconfig gets it.
Indeed initially it is provided by the ISP.
