CentOS 7 equivalents to deprecated networking commands
Why some of the networking commands don't work on Linux CentOS 7 anymore, while they all worked on CentOS 6 before?
1. Linux is deprecating the net-tools package in newer versions due to lack of maintenance.
2. Some of the distributions, like CentOS 7 minimal or Ubuntu Docker, don't have net-tools package installed by default.
3. It is recommended to go forward with new command replacements, see further info below:
