# ifconfig eth0
Too much characters :)
Why not to add alias for that?
Let's edit '.bashrc' file, and add alias for that:
alias eth0='ifconfig eth0'
Save & restart console and woala, just type 'eth0' and you've got the info.
I'll go further, and will make a script inside '.bashrc' file, that will add all interfaces for that automatically:
for line in $(echo $(ls /sys/class/net/) |tr -s ' '|tr ' ' '\n'); do alias $line="ifconfig $line" done
As you can see, the script looks into directory '/sys/class/net/' where listed all physical interfaces.
If you have 'wlan0' interface, you will be able to type:
#wlan0and get the info.
As well, you can manipulate your interface through this command, like:
#eth0 downActually the command will be 'ifconfig eth0 down'
