Purists among you will note that the commands covered in this section are usually associated with TCP/IP and thus might organizationally have been included in that chapter.

|ftp||Transfer files between networked machines.|
|hostname||Display or set name of host.|
|netstat||Display network usage information.|
|ping||Request confirmation packed from remote host.|
|rarp||Reverse Address Resolution ...|
