Network Manager post-up script (dispatcher script)

Network manager is supposed to be much better than network, how so?

it supports dnsmasq for one…

Dnsmasq with netowrkmanager

Local name resolution

Also Network Manager supports dispatcher scripts. How can that help? For one, I used to send interface up emails. To do so, all I had to do was put the following script in “/etc/NetworkManager/dispatcher.d”

#!/bin/sh

cd /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts
. ./network-functions

[ -f ../network ] && . ../network

# Notify programs that have requested notification
IF=$1
STATUS=$2

cat
