networking software on your system.
To run ip6_setup, enter the following command and then
answer the questions: # ip6_setup
You must know your Internet Protocol Version 6 (IPv6)

know the subnet mask for your network. The network manager
should be able to provide you with the information
that you need.

on the system can be restarted manually with the
following command: # /usr/sbin/rcinet restart

command, warn the users that the network services on the
system are being removed. File systems that were not
mounted using the /etc/fstab file or the automount command

remount these file systems using the mount command after
the network is started on your system.
Alternatively, you can reboot the system with the following
command: # /usr/sbin/shutdown -r now
