    welcome to the forum

    > bash: show: command not found

    means there is no command named "show"

    what are you trying to do? Guessing
    maybe "ifconfig" is what you want--try
    "man ifconfig" to learn more

    Thanks tpl.

    I want to see the link state information related to ospf. It doesn't seem like ifconfig will do. There are also many other info. I want to see using "show". I am wondering why the "show" commond is not working in my linux, while it seems to work for many other people.

    Thanks,
    Wen

    The program 'show' is currently not installed. You can install it by typing:
    sudo apt-get install nmh

    The above is the message I got from Ubuntu. Your distro may be entirely different.
