Linux equivalent of netsh command?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 3, 2009
Yesterday we suffered an Internet outage.
We called up our ISP (Orange) and were first told "we don't support Linux!"
The operator then repeatedly told us that she was going to send us a new Ethernet cable which would somehow fix our problem.
When I asked how this would also prevent access via wireless the operator just kept saying the same thing over and over!!!
We DID manage to get a call-back arranged, and the chap was a lot more rational and knowledgeable.
In the interests of achieving our goal of getting back on line we fired up xp on another machine connected to our router (orange livebox).
We were asked to stop the DHCP service, and then type "netsh int ip reset c:\resetlog.txt" into the windows command line (which worked), and my question is this:
Since we wish to be shot of xp, and don't want to run into the buffers again should this problem re-occur, what is the Ubuntu (9.04) equivalent of the same command, and is the reset.txt fi
Linux equivalent of "ipconfig /setclassid" command?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 7, 2010
I am connected to a local network that assigns different DHCP values depending on the value set in the DOS command "ipconfig /setclassid" on a Windows machine.
Is there an equivalent command or setting for Linux DHCP in "ifclient" or "dhclient" or some other option file that will allow me to set up a Class ID that can be passed to my DHCP server?
Linux equivalent of the DOS diskpart /clean command?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 17, 2013
I've been switching OSes every few days these past 2 weeks, and every time I've first stuck a Windows 7 DVD in and ran diskpart /clean in order to make the next OS installation a bit smoother (at the very least I don't get asked if I'm sure I want to obliterate all existing data and at the very worst I don't have the OS installer freaking out on me because it can't delete the existing partitions for whatever reason). In light of that, I'm wondering if there's a Linux equivalent of the diskpart /clean command?
Linux equivalent to DOS "tree" command?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 22, 2005
I'm taking a OS class and we're going over commands from DOS and their equals in Linux but I cannot for the life of me find a command that shows a listing of directories like the "tree" command does in DOS. I remember doing it and I cannot find it. And the ls -R command is not what I'm talking about in case anyone was thinking that.
If anyone could tell me I'd appreciate it, I've been strugling with this forever, the final is over and this is the only question I have left before I'm out of this class and gone untill next quarter LOL.
Linux equivalent command?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 19, 2013
G'day, in the world of the 'other OS' (Win/DOS) I frequently used this command line (run from the desired folder directory):
tree /f /a >c:\test.txt
This produced a text file containing a folder+file list of the contents of an drive or folder.
Is there a simple equivalent terminal command in linux that would do the same thing?

Linux equivalent of the Mac OS X “open” command [closed]
location: linuxexchange.com - date: August 30, 2011
I've found the "open" command in Mac OS X very handy in the command line. From "man open":
The open command opens a file (or a directory or URL), just as if you had
double-clicked the file's icon. If no application name is specified, the
default application as determined via LaunchServices is used to open the
That is, if I want to open a PDF file with the default PDF viewer (happens to be Preview), I only need to do:
In Linux, however, to open a PDF file from the command line, I had to dig around to find the default PDF viewer is, for instance, "evince" (who'd have guessed??), and then
So, is there a simple equivalent of the 'open' command in the Linux command line?

Looking to get a timeout/wait command in linux equivalent to msdos

I'm trying to make a timeout in my .sh file that is the same as the one in my .bat file, but I'm not sure of how to do it... at all.
