Restart networking services on Mac OSX

By on Jul 7, 2013 in Mac OSX | 1 comment

There is no /etc/init.d/networking at Mac OSX like in Ubuntu.

sudo ifconfig en0 down

sudo ifconfig en0 up

Disabling and enabling the network interface will do the job.

If you have to do it via SSH use this command:

sudo ifconfig en0 down;sleep 1;sudo ifconfig en0 up
