General information:
Pyiface is a package that exposes the network interfaces
of the operating system in a easy to use and transparent way
Typical usage looks like this::

#Get all available network interfaces
allIfaces = pyiface.getIfaces()
for iface in allIfaces:
print iface

#Get a specific interface by name
eth0 = pyiface.Interface('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, '1.2.3.4')

#set ipv6 address of the interface
eth0.addr = (socket.AF_INET6, '2001:0db8:85a3:0000:0000:8a2e:0370:7334')
