Setting Static IP in Linux

To setup a static IP in ubuntu, edit your networking settings file.

Here is an example of how to do it:

Open /etc/network/interfaces:

Use these configurations:


auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

auto eth0
iface eth0 inet static
address 192.168.0.10
network 192.168.0.0
netmask 255.255.255.0
broadcast 192.168.0.255
gateway 192.168.0.1

DHCP Address Configuration:


auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

auto eth0
iface eth0 inet dhcp

Then restart the service: /etc/init.d/networking restart (Make sure you are running with admin privileges when restarting 🙂 )
