One of the few things I do from the command line in both windows and linux on
a regular basis is this: the Windows "ipconfig /all" command is actually
better, though, I wouldn't be surprised to find there's options in the
utility I haven't discovered yet since I just learned of it.
The windows command with the /all switch reveals much useful info - not just
mac and ip addresses, but, the gateways being used, and the dns servers
configured for those addresses, something I often need to know.
To see routes, use:
ip route list
In Unix dns server ip addresses aren't really bound to interfaces. When some
interfaces become active they may change the dns server ip addresses, but
then all (normal) applications start using those new addresses.
The dns server addresses are kept in /etc/resolv.conf .
