netcfg - start/stop/control network profiles
netcfg is used to configure and manage network connections via profiles. It has pluggable support for a range of connection types, such as wireless, ethernet, ppp. It is also capable of starting/stopping many to one connections, that is, multiple connections within the same profile, optionally with bonding.
It may be run at boot, by enabling the /etc/rc.d/net-profiles daemon in /etc/rc.conf DAEMONS line. After boot time, it may be used to start profiles, simply by passing only the profile name.
When run without options, netcfg profile is equivalent to netcfg -u profile.
