I am working with android, I have connected a ethernet cable to ethernet port of my hardware.

I am not getting any network. I am using Android O.

In linux I can use dhclient eth0 (for getting IP addresses dynamically)

Please help me with the command I need to use in android, as dhclient is not available in my setup.

Thank you.


You may need BusyBox and root access to proceed.

You can see all built-in Unix-like commands by running toybox.

  • Can you elaborate with example as how to use it? Busybox tools are known for being stripped off with many functionalities and options from there full blown counterpart. – Firelord May 28 '18 at 15:43
