NETREPORT(1)                                                      NETREPORT(1)




NAME

       netreport - request notification of network interface changes


SYNOPSIS

       netreport [-r]


DESCRIPTION

       netreport  tells  the network management scripts to send a SIGIO signal
       to the process which called netreport when any network interface status
       changes occur.


OPTIONS

       -r     Remove the current request (if any) for the calling process.



NOTES

       If  a  program  does  not  call  netreport with the -r option before it
       exits, and another process is created with  the  same  PID  before  any
       changes  take  place  in  interface status, it is possible that the new
       process will receive a spurious SIGIO.
