    PREFIX question?

    Hi All,

    In ifcfg-xxxx, do I presume correctly that `PREFIX=xx` is the short netmask?

    And do I also presume that PREFIX has superseded NETMASK?

    And can either still be used?

    Many thanks,
    -T

    It's the CIDR version.

    Assuming it's a typical home network, you want 24.
    Code:
    PREFIX="24"

    Thank you for the confirmation.

    Can I still use NETMASK? What happens if I use both?

    I have no idea.
    Use one or the other, you don't need both.
