View and control network interfaces. Linux only currently! Join us lets make it available for other OSes
Pyiface is a package that exposes the network interfaces of the operating system in an easy to use and transparent way. Typical usage looks like this:
#!/usr/bin/env python import pyiface from pyiface.ifreqioctls import IFF_UP # Get all available network interfaces allIfaces = pyiface.getIfaces() for iface in allIfaces: print(iface) # Get a specific interface by name eth0 = pyiface.Interface(name='eth0') # view eth0 info print(eth0) # bring eth0 up eth0.flags = eth0.flags | IFF_UP # set ipv4 address of the interface eth0.addr = (socket.AF_INET, '184.108.40.206') # set ipv6 address of the interface eth0.addr = (socket.AF_INET6, '2001:0db8:85a3:0000:0000:8a2e:0370:7334')
To install the package simply call setup.py with the install option.
