How to install ifconfig on Debian
I didn't know that I wouldn't have the ifconfig command if I installed Debian. Well actually it was ProxMox, which is based on Debian.
But if you're here, you're probably wanting to know how to install ifconfig on Debian. I like the command and it's often the first thing I type in a terminal if I'm having network difficulties.
So to install ifconfig on debian, just open a terminal (with root privileges) and install it with the following command:
apt install net-tools
Now you've got ifconfig installed.
Try it. Open a terminal and type ifconfig and then press Enter.
