zh-CN:Netctl Template:Article summary start Template:Article summary text Template:Article summary end Netctl 是 Arch Linux 中基于命令行的网络管理器,它是 Arch 的新项目,会替换掉 netcfg


netctl 软件包已经进入[core]. 安装 netctl 会替换掉无人维护的netcfg


开发者为了完善 man 文档投入了大量的精力,建议用户使用前阅读如下文档:

  • netctl
  • netctl.profile
  • netctl.special


netctl 可以用来检查和控制 systemd 网络配置管理服务的状态。软件提供了一些配置文件的示例以供参考。这些示例位于/etc/netctl/examples/,包括:

  • ethernet-dhcp
  • ethernet-static
  • wireless-wpa
  • wireless-wpa-static


# cp /etc/netctl/examples/wireless-wpa /etc/netctl/my-wireless-wpa


# netctl start <profile>

如果命令出错,可以使用 journalctl -xnnetctl status <profile> 检查出错原因。修正重新设置。

配置成功启动后,可以用 netctl enable <profile> 启用. 此命令会建立正确的软链接供netctl-auto@.service使用。

注意: 需要启用netctl-auto@<interface>.service才能在系统启动时自动配置无线连接。


# netctl reenable <profile>

从 netcfg 迁移的方法

netctl 使用 /etc/netctl 保存配置,而不是 /etc/network.d (netcfg保存配置的位置).

从 netcfg 迁移,请执行:

  • 将老的网络配置移动到新目录
  • 根据 netctl.profile(5) 修改变量名称(主要是大小写变化,例如 CONNECTION= 变成 Connection=).
  • 接口变量和其他变量不再需要引号(这仅仅是风格变化).
  • 为每一个配置执行netctl enable <profile> 'last' 工作方式有变化,参阅 netctl.special(7).
  • 使用 netctl list / netctl start <profile> 替换 netcfg-menu. wifi-menu 依然保留。

Password encryption (256-bit PSK)

Users not wishing to have their passwords stored in plain text have the option of generating a 256-bit Encrypted PSK.

If you have not done so already, install wpa_actiond from the [core] repository using pacman

 # pacman -S wpa_actiond

Next, generate your 256-bit Encrypted PSK using wpa_passphrase:

Usage: wpa_passphrase [ssid] [passphrase]
$ wpa_passphrase archlinux freenode

In a second terminal window copy the example file wireless-wpa from /etc/netctl/examples to /etc/netctl.

# cp /etc/netctl/examples/wireless-wpa /etc/netctl/wireless-wpa

You will then need to edit /etc/netctl/wireless-wpa using your favorite text editor and add the Encrypted Pre-shared Key that was generated earlier using wpa_passphrase, to the Key variable of this profile.

Once completed your network profile wireless-wpa containing a 256-bit Encrypted PSK should resemble:

Description='A simple WPA encrypted wireless connection using 256-bit Encrypted PSK'
Note: Make sure to use the special non-quoted rules for Key= that are explained at the end of netctl.profile(5)

Tips and Tricks

As of April 2013 there is no netctl alternative to 'netcfg current'. If you relied on it for something, like a status bar for a tiling window manager, you can now use:

netctl list|grep \*|sed 's/\*//'|sed 's/\ //'
