NET file extension - Network configuration

What is net file? How to open net files?

File type specification:

Configuration file type icon Configuration file type

File extension net is generally related to various network configuration files. Probably most common are IBM AIX *.net files.

The /etc/ file is a shell script that contains configuration information.

The  IBM AIX stanzas allow you to enable the network interfaces and set the host name, the default gateway, and any static routes for the current host.

This file can be used as a one-step configuration alternative to using individually the set of commands and files necessary to configure a host.

The shell script is run by the configuration manager program during the second phase of configuration. If TCP/IP is installed, a second script, rc.tcpip, is run from the init command after the second phase of configuration has completed and after the init command has started the SRC master.

The shell script may also be run by the configuration manager program (cfgmgr) if cfgmgr is run after system configuration is completed. It is often run at other times to configure new devices that have been added to the system since boot time. If cfgmgr runs, both the configuration methods and itself check to see if networking devices are already in the Available state.
