If you’re looking for tools like ifconfig, netstat, route and are getting a command not found error, you are missing the net-tools package. This used to be installed by default, but since Ubuntu 18.04 it is not.

Simple fix. Just install it:

sudo apt-get install -y net-tools

That will install the net-tools package and it’s included tools

  • arp
  • hostname
  • ifconfig
  • ipmaddr
  • iptunnel
  • mii-tool
  • nameif
  • netstat
  • plipconfig
  • rarp
  • slattach
