I'm trying to list all network interfaces in Windows Subsystem for Linux shell but I got this error message:

Warning: cannot open /proc/net/dev (File o directory non esistente). Limited output.

Any suggestion?

  • It is probably not yet implemented. Since /dev is a special file system created by the Linux kernel on demand, every part of it needs to be implemented in the Windows Subsystem for Linux. – Jan Henke Sep 14 '16 at 13:07
  • Did you ever get anywhere further with this? Allegedly, you can run apache under WSL (implying networking works?), but I cannot find any info how networking for WSL is supposed to be configured. Or official documentation on what all WSL supports for that matter. – Brian McFarland Oct 11 '16 at 14:28
  • Hi Brian, I haven't any news on this... Vote my question, maybe it will attract other user that can suggest us something. – DarkSkull Oct 14 '16 at 12:24

Making my comment a proper answer, as of the day of this writing, the feature is probably not yet implemented.
