more of activating and deactivating network card

With my recent entry on doing start and stop with network card, which can be found here, here's another alternative on activating and deactivating your ethernet card.

This entry covers another alternative way of stopping and starting your ethernet interfaces using
neat-control. This simple linux command neat-control is available both in terminal and X mode.



Simply launch neat-control from X by hitting Ctrl+F2 and entering neat-control. A sample screen shot below would appear from your screen giving you another approach to activate and deactivate ethernet card(s) from X.


The terminal version of neat-control from terminal is called neat-tui. Just issue

# neat-tui
