 Most network configuration manuals still refer to [[https://​en.wikipedia.org/​wiki/​ifconfig|ifconfig]] and [[https://​en.wikipedia.org/​wiki/​route (command)|route]] as the primary network configuration tools, but ifconfig is known to behave inadequately in modern network environments. They should be deprecated, but most [[https://​en.wikipedia.org/​wiki/​Linux_distributions|distros]] still include them. Most network configuration systems make use of ifconfig and thus provide a limited feature set. The [[:​networking:​etcnet|/​etc/​net]] project aims to support most modern network technologies,​ as it doesn'​t use ifconfig and allows a system administrator to make use of all iproute2 features, including traffic control. Most network configuration manuals still refer to [[https://​en.wikipedia.org/​wiki/​ifconfig|ifconfig]] and [[https://​en.wikipedia.org/​wiki/​route (command)|route]] as the primary network configuration tools, but ifconfig is known to behave inadequately in modern network environments.
