Hi,

I newly installed a CentOS, but when I tried to use ifconfig to find out the ip address of the machine.  the command doesn't work.  It seems like the ifconfig command is not there.  Please help.  Thanks.

I found the answer.  The reason is the ifconfig is not in the default user folder.  Instead it works by specifying the folder.

/sbin/ifconfig works fine.
