Query the status of network links. Manage the network configuration using systemd-networkd. More information:

  • List existing links with their status:

networkctl list

  • Show an overall network status:

networkctl status

  • Bring network devices up:

networkctl up {{interface1 interface2 ...}}

  • Bring network devices down:

networkctl down {{interface1 interface2 ...}}

  • Renew dynamic configurations (e.g. IP addresses received from a DHCP server):

networkctl renew {{interface1 interface2 ...}}

  • Reload configuration files (.netdev and .network):

networkctl reload

  • Reconfigure network interfaces (if you edited the config, you need to call networkctl reload first):

networkctl reconfigure {{interface1 interface2 ...}}
