Release and Renew IP in OS X

 ·  ☕ 2 min read  ·  ✍️ Chris Titus

I recently had some issues where a bridged virtual machine in osx would disconnect my osx side network connection. A simple release and renew would fix this.

Simply open up Terminal in OSX and type:

sudo ifconfig en0 down

sudo ifconfig en0 up

Obviously if you are renewing another interface other than your Ethernet port, en0 would need to be changed to the corresponding short name of the interface.
