Changing to fixed IP is very similar to the way it’s done in Ubuntu. To change to static IP address: sudo nano /etc/network/ interfaces replace line “iface eth0 inet dhcp” with: iface eth0 inet static address 192.168.1.20 netmask 255.255.255.0 gateway 192.168.1.10 Check also that nameserver points to your gateway or ISP nameserver: sudo nano /etc/resolv.conf nameserver 192.168.1.10 You can restart the network interface but it’s easier just to reboot: sudo reboot Wait a bit for the reboot then log in and check the new config: ifconfig NOTE: nano is my preferred editor. I also use mc for quick simple file management. Author Posts Viewing 1 post (of 1 total) You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
