  • Hi , I am trying to configure my debian os VM as a router and after few changes I tried to restart my NICs using /etc/init.d/networking restart in root directory. It says this error bash:/etc/init.d/networking is not a directory But when I try to run the command from the home directory it did. – susheelbhargavk Jun 4 '18 at 20:38

    You need to ask your question on the correct SE site. I suggested some in a comment on your original question. For a device to be on-topic for Network Engineering, the manufacturer must offer optional, paid support. – Ron Maupin Mod Jun 4 '18 at 20:40

On the What topics can I ask about here? page, it explains a couple of caveats:

and meets the following requirements

  • under your direct control (if the network is not under your control you will not likely be able to provide the information required to answer your question);
  • hardware that has a paid support option from the manufacturer (enterprise/provider class products, some small business class devices);
