Aliases for tools removed from `net-tools` package – via: openSUSE Build Service

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/06/16

Since quite a few commands that you regularly see mentioned on the web have been removed from OpenSuSE net-tools, I’ve created a few bash aliases in /etc/bash.bashrc.local below.

Note the original commands are not good have been deprecated for years on various distros and therefore removed:

# stuff removed from net-tools

## Because of changes on Thu Apr 10 12:33:41 UTC 2014
alias "arp=echo 'use \"ip neigh\" or \"ip -r neight\"' && ip neigh"
alias "ifconfig=echo 'use \"ip a\"' && ip a"
alias "netstat= echo 'use \"ss\" or \"ss -r\"' && ss"
alias "route=echo 'use \"ip r\"' && ip r"
## Because of changes on Sun Mar 29 00:41:21 UTC 2015
alias "ipmaddr=echo 'use \"ip maddr\"' && ip maddr"
alias "iptunnel=echo 'use \"ip tunnel\"' && ip tunnel"

Some bits of the net-tools change-log:

Sun Mar 29 00:41:21 UTC 2015 -
- ipmaddr and iptunnel are obsolete too, move them to subpackage.
(Superseded by `ip maddr` and `ip tunnel`)
- remove redundant %clean section
Thu Apr 10 12:33:41 UTC 2014 -
- Move arp, ifconfig, netstat and route to a -deprecated subpackage
(fate#317196, fate#317197)
- Drop the rarp tool, which has been broken since kernel 2.3

Note that the -lntu parameter seems to be the same for both ss and netstat: [WayBackGet a list of Open Ports in Linux – Super User
