I am wanting to run the command ipconfig but I cannot find it. Clearly it is not installed on my FC5 system (i.e. whereis doesn't report anything) so how do I get it? Which package do I need to load to install it? Is there are a way to work out which package it is in without bothering this forum?

Thanks,

KP

ipconfig is a dos command isn't it? Try ifconfig

Oh and if you use tracert forget that one too try /sbin/traceroute

Thanks to you all. It explains why I couldn't find this command. Not hard to tell I come from a Windows environoment!
