Debian / Mint / Ubuntu net-tools packages provides netstat, ifconfig, route, arp and other classic network admin tools

The net-tools command brings back all of the oldschool tools that we're used to:

  • /bin/netstat
  • /sbin/ifconfig
  • /sbin/ipmaddr
  • /sbin/iptunnel
  • /sbin/mii-tool
  • /sbin/nameif
  • /sbin/plipconfig
  • /sbin/rarp
  • /sbin/route
  • /sbin/slattach
  • /usr/sbin/arp
     

To install it just do an:

apt-get install net-tools

Of coures this applies to all of the main Debian distros whether we are talking Ubuntu, Mint etc etc..
