IPS Commands

The Image Packaging System software provides the following commands:


Use the pkg(1) command to create an image, to install packages to your image, and to manage packages on your image.


Use the pkgsend(1) command to publish packages from your image to an existing repository.


Use the pkg.depotd(1M) command to create and manage your own network repository or set up a mirror repositories.


Use the pkgrecv command to download the contents of a package from a server. The user can then modify the contents by adding additional package attributes and republish the package with the pkgsend command.

Note - The pkg(5) man page describes the overall Image Packaging System. The pkg(1) man page describes the image packaging retrieval client.
