/etc/net represents a new approach to Linux network configuration tasks. Inspired by the limitations of traditional configuration subsystems, /etc/net provides builtin support for configuration profiles, interface name management, removable device support, full iproute2 command set support, interface dependency resolution, and a QoS configuration framework.
/etc/net provides support for the following interface types: Ethernet, WiFi (WEP), IPv6/IPv6 tunnels, PSK IPSec tunnels, VLAN, PLIP, Ethernet bonding and bridging, traffic equalizer, Pent@NET, usbnet, and PPP. Due to its modular design, support for new interface types can be added without overall design changes.
Here are some key features of "etc net Configurator":
