Description of problem:
if dhcp is used for IP configuration, then you don't have the option to view the
actual settings you received from DHCP server, unless you open a command prompt
and do "ifconfig eth?", "cat /etc/resolv.conf", "route" and so on. I can do
that, but there should be a place in gui to see them. I thing that the best
place is in redhat-control-network program, when you press the Info button, you
should get info about the card selected and not about the program itself.
Also should be nice to see interface counters. (bytes in/out, packets in/out,
This should be the actual network setup, not read from config files (except
maybe for dns which is in /etc/resolv.conf).
So, if I manualy enter "ifconfig eth1 126.96.36.199 up" , I should see this value in
the info window, not what is in the profile ifcfg-eth1.
The same for the routes, and others.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
somewhere you should be able to see the IP in the gui
Steps to Reproduce:
1.open whatever program you want from redhat-config-network
2.try to see actual network setup, and interface/network counters.
Actual Results: cannot find it.
Expected Results: should be somewhere.
