in Cisco routers there is such command as
show interfaces. It outputs a lot of meta information for all the interfaces in the router (status: up/down, )
What are the similar commands I could run in my Netgear (6700) router? I was able to telnet.
uname -a returns “Linux R6700v3 188.8.131.52brcmarm+ …. “
The primary tool I think you are looking for is
ifconfig ifconfig -a
ifconfig displays the network interfaces, addressing information, and statistics. It does not come preinstalled by default all on Linux distributions, and there are a lot of alternatives that can provide networking information.
ip link show ip a netstat -i arp -a
Example ifconfig output:
eth0: flags=4163<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,MULTICAST> mtu 1500 inet 172.30.218.236 netmask 255.255.240.0 broadcast 172.30.223.255 inet6 fe80::215:5dff:fe8a:770c prefixlen 64 scopeid 0x20<link> ether 00:15:5d:8a:77:0c txqueuelen 1000 (Ethernet) RX packets 139 bytes 31553 (31.5 KB) RX errors 0 dropped 0 overruns 0 frame 0 TX packets 12 bytes 936 (936.0 B) TX errors 0 dropped 0 overruns 0 carrier 0 collisions 0
