    The command 'ipconfig' is for windows, not for linux based operating system. The command for linux for viewing ethernet configuration is :
    Code:
    ifconfig

    Yes, 'ifconfig' is the correct command. There are similar commands in both operating systems but the parameters are not all same. try Ping with -t option it will work on windows but not in linux. The parameters are different...
