chgif Reconfigures an instance of a network interface.
chginet Reconfigures the Internet instance.
defif Defines a network interface in the configuration database.
definet Defines an inet instance in the system configuration database.
stpinet Disables the inet instance.
sttinet Enables the inet instance.
ucfgif Unloads an interface instance from the kernel.
