_Description: static interfaces to be watched by ifplugd:
Specify the interfaces to control here, separated by spaces. Ifplugd
processes will be started for each of these interfaces when the ifplugd
initscript is called with the "start" argument. You may use the magic
string "auto" to make the initscript start or stop ifplugd processes for
ALL eth and wlan interfaces that are available according to
/proc/net/dev. Note that the list of interfaces appearing in
/proc/net/dev may depend on which kernel modules you have loaded.
You should not add interfaces that are hotplugged (USB or PCMCIA) here,
you will be asked for those in the next question.
_Description: hotplugged interfaces to be watched by ifplugd:
Specify the hotplugged interfaces to control here, separated by spaces.
You may use the magic string "all" to make the hotplug script start an
ifplugd process for any hotplugged interface.
Hotplugged interfaces are usually interfaces on PCMCIA or WLAN adapters.
Default: -q -f -u0 -d10 -w -I
_Description: arguments to ifplugd:
You can give arguments to the ifplug daemon here. Relevant options are:
-q Don't run script on daemon quit
-f Ignore detection failure and retry
-u Specify delay for configuring interface
-d Specify delay for deconfiguring interface
-w Wait until daemon fork finished
-I Don't exit on nonzero return value of program executed
-a Do not enable interface automatically
-s Use stderr instead of syslog for debugging
-b Do not beep (-U/-D Do not beep on interface up/down)
-t Specify poll time in seconds (default: 1)
-p Don't run script on daemon startup
-l Run "down" script on startup if no cable is detected
-W Wait until the daemon died when running daemon is killed
-M Use interface monitoring
__Choices: none, suspend, stop
_Description: suspend behaviour:
When you put your notebook into suspend mode, you can choose between three
none: no action
suspend: this puts ifplugd into suspend mode. In this mode, ifplugd does
not check the link status. This is necessary for some broken network
stop: this stops ifplugd. If the -q option is not given, ifplugd will stop
the interface. After resume, it will be restarted. This makes sense if you
use some mechanism (eg. guessnet or whereami) to detect your network
environment, which may have changed while suspending.
