The purpose of this tutorial is to show to use the Ubuntu ip command to see information about the local IP address, default gateway, and DNS servers on Ubuntu 20.04 Focal Fossa Linux.
Wake-on-lan (also known with the “W.O.L” acronym) is a standard ethernet feature which allows a machine to be woken up on the reception of a specific type of network packet (the so called MagicPacket). The main advantage of this feature is that it allows us to keep a machine in a low power consumption state, and be accessed only when needed.
Iwd is the acronym of “iNet wireless daemon”. As the name suggests, it is a free and open source wireless management daemon written by Intel for Linux. It is designed to avoid the usage of external libraries it just relies on the functionalities integrated into the kernel.
Most of us longtime Linux users have the

The default gateway is an essential part of computer networking. When a computer attempts to communicate with another device, it will send packets to the default gateway. The default gateway, which is usually a router, will then direct the packets where they need to go.
In this article we will discuss a netplan static IP configuration on Ubuntu Linux. Netplan allows for straightforward network IP address configuration using human-readable data-serialization language YAML. The article will also discuss a default Netplan network settings and the location of the Netplan configuration file.
rsync stands for “remote sync” and is a powerful command line utility for synchronizing directories either on a local system or with remote machines. It’s built into nearly every Linux system by default and this tutorial will help you to understand rsync better by providing you most common rsync examples administrators use to keep the data synchronised across multiple server/hosts.
Some users mistakenly think of rsync as a file copying tool, like
scp.While there’s some overlap, rsync excels in synchronization, specifically. In other words, it can take a source directory and make an identical destination directory.
NFS, SAMBA, and CIFS are three different terms that get thrown around a lot whenever someone mentions file sharing between two or more systems. But, do you know what these three implementations do, and how they do it differently from one another? For some reason these technologies remain in a shroud of mystery to even some seasoned system administrators.
