Static IP configuration on Ubuntu 8.10ic

1. Edit interfaces file

sudo gedit /etc/network/interfaces

add lines:

auto eth0
iface eth0 inet static

If there is a line like:

iface eth0 inet dhcp

need to add # before the line to comment it.

2. Edit file /etc/resolv.conf

sudo gedit /etc/resolv.conf

Add lines:


These are DNS, that might be different for different ISP

If you do only step 1, not step 2, you can only visite web site by using number IP not domain name.

3. Restart network

sudo /etc/init.d/networking restart

You should see the static IP you setup.

Note: the graphic thing (for net work configure) on the top bar is not working even I set up everything there.
