NAME

wire-test – test your network interfaces and local IP address

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS


wire-test [host]

DESCRIPTION

This command is obsolete. Users are advised to use autofs(5) instead.

The wire-test utility is used to find out what amd(8) thinks are the first two network interfaces and network names/numbers used, as well as the IP address used for amd(8) to NFS-mount itself.

If host is specified, then wire-test will test for the working combinations of NFS protocol and version from the current client to the NFS server host. If not specified, host defaults to "localhost".
