If that location is not writable (for example, because the root filesystem is mounted read-only for system recovery) then /run/network/ifstate should be made a symbolic link to a writable location.
If that is not possible then you can use the --force option to run configuration or deconfiguration commands without updating the file.
Display the interface options as specified in the ifupdown configuration.
Each key-value pair is printed out on individual line using ": " as separator.
Hi, I have a Synology Rackstation and have configured a VPN Server to work with PPTP. I've played with all the setting for hours and am at a loss about what to do.
The ifup and ifdown commands may be used to configure network interfaces based on interface definitions in the file /etc/network/interfaces.The ifquery command is used to parse interface configuration data.If given to ifup, affect all interfaces marked auto.Under exceptional circumstances these records can become inconsistent with the real states of the interfaces.
For example, an interface that was brought up using ifup and later deconfigured using ifconfig will still be recorded as up.
There are two possible reasons why this could happen, either there is an issue with the repository that the maintainers have to fix, or you are victim of a Man-in-the-middle_attacks. Just make sure, you never install unsigned packages as explained above. Otherwise anonymity/privacy/security settings deployed with Whonix might get lost.
