can't set static ip (ubuntu server 12.10)
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 18, 2012
Hi, this is my first post here. I've been scouring the net looking for a solution, so i signed up. I did a forum search for static ip issues after joining, and none of the recent entries seemed to match my problem, which is this:
I am running ubuntu server (12.10) on a gateway laptop. I'm wired into my home router and want to set my IP to a static value. Any time i edit /etc/network/interfaces to static instead of DHCP, i can't connect to anything. Can't ssh in from my desktop or even ping my router.
I'm not sure whether this is a problem with my platform, my network adapter, my router, or ??? but i'm pretty sure i've narrowed down the problem to my interfaces file and the dhcp/static swap.
The meat of my interfaces file is pasted below. I have my wireless card switched off to prevent its tomfoolery. I've been editing the file so much, i'm not even bothering at this point to delete lines. I just comment out the dhcp line when i'm trying a static configuration. I've done every "
Static IP Ubuntu Server 12.04 no longer appears in Win7 Network places

Before you read my whole story below... I just found this Network Configuration page and using the Static IP section to simplify /etc/network/interfaces [didn't solve it, just appeared and then disappeared again the next day].
The back-story as to why I'm here:
Fairly new to Ubuntu. First time posting here in the forums. I'm not all that super smart with computers... I can just figures stuff out and get by.
My main computer is running Windows 7, but I was recently looking at my DVD collection (900+ movies) and thinking... "I wonder if I could put these all on my computer and stream them to the TV?" This idea was followed by an attempt to plug a USB external Harddrive into my router. Then with further research, I stumbled across the idea of a server. Found several guides that walked through setting up a server, step-by-step, and I was determined to accomplish this task, even though I had no idea what I was getting into.
I researched and bought components, built a computer a
Static IP Ubuntu server
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 15, 2011
Hello, I am fairly new to the open source community so excuse the novice question.
I have a client that has just started a small business and would like to have his own web server to host a simple site.
The client has a Time Warner business Internet account with 5 static IP's and wants to dedicate one of those IP's for the server. The client will not have a router between the server and gateway so basically an open internet connection. I will enable 22, and 80 via ufw later. I will be doing all modifications via at the terminal. Here is just an example of what I have.
I know these are lan configs. but if this is what the ISP has given me what would the output file look like in the network/interfaces?
setting for static
I also know that I would open the resolv.conf file and change the DNS to what the ISP has given me.
static IP under Ubuntu 11.10

I'm trying to set up a static IP under Ubuntu 11.10. I copied from my old system the following into /etc/network/interfaces:
dhcp vs static ip: ssh problem ubuntu 11.10
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 13, 2012
I set-up my ubuntu-server 11.10 out of the box and changed the interfaces settings to
# The primary network interface
iface eth0 inet static
However, I kept getting Write failed: Broken pipe issues. It worked for about 30s and than it broke. Moving it back to the original settings
iface eth0 inet dhcp
resolved the issue and I can ssh into my server and the sessions last until I close them. Unfortunately, it is far from ideal to have a dynamic ip for a server. I am wondering what I am doing wrong in my set-up of the static ip. The address is the same as the server sets in the set-up file. Gateway is the ip of the router. Not sure about netmask, broadcast, network, but the above seem to be the standard settings.
Any idea on the Write failed: Broken pipe
appreciate the help
How to make ubuntu to use static ip in command line ?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 26, 2011
The latest ubuntu is using network-manager to set static/dhcp.
So i cannot use command line to change this anymore ?
i only see
iface lo inet loopback
nothing configured for eth0.
But when i boot up, it's using dhcp ?
Where does it get the configuration now ?
Believe I'm using ubuntu 11.04.
Howto Set Ubuntu 10.04 on a static IP
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 10, 2011
Before I begin, a note about local network addresses: The IP address range in most home networking applications will be of the range of 192.168.x.2 through 192.168.x.254, with a gateway of 192.168.x.1 and a netmask of 255.255.255.0. Depending on your router manufacturer, your x may be the numeric value of 0, 1 or 2. But whatever value it is, it is unchanging throughout the life of your network.
Typically, if your router is built-in to the modem, the number for x is often 0, and may be 1. I have been acquainted with people running the combined modem-router on a DSL circuit, but have not been around a cable modem. My personal experience has always been separate modem and router on a DSL circuit.
The procedure I followed to set up my computer running Ubuntu 10.04 to be on a static IP within my router's local network is as follows:
Determine the parameters of my local network by visiting my router's admin page with my browser. In the case of my Belkin, that would be 192.168.
How to change to static ip address on my ubuntu server

Im running ubuntu server 10.10 on my wirtual mashine at home.
For now i have few service installed and configured:apache with phpand mysql support,ftp,phpmyadmin..
My ip address is not static, i tryed to configure by following some guide but without success.
First i edit this in /etc/network/interfaces (changing dhcp to static
# The primary network interface
iface eth0 inet static
address (adding some random ip address - lets say the address which is granted from previous dhcp configuration)
Then i edit /etc/resolv.conf
nameserver (changing to my.gateway.address.10)
domain localdomain #
search localdomain # those 2 not changing
then in some guide it says to remove dhcpclient if it's installed.. so i enter this:
sudo apt-get remove dhcp-client
then reboot network adapter with ( ~networking restart) or just reboot server.
So the addres
[SOLVED] Static IP Address not connecting to the internet Ubuntu 9.04
location: linuxquestions.com - date: September 5, 2009
Hi, I just installed Ubuntu 9.04 on my desktop. I had networking working for a while under DHCP after I installed Wicd (and uninstalled Gnome Network Manager) but now that I've set up a static IP address (that campus IT gave me, I'm on a college network), it has ceased to connect to the internet. I cannot use Firefox or ping any external servers (eg: www.google.com) or internal computers (my laptop).
Here are the results for the following commands:
IP address on static assigned ubuntu server keeps changing!
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 24, 2012
I have a computer on my network with a static ip assignment! The computer is a server running ubuntu 10.04 LTS and i set it to have a static IP! The problem is that after a while the ip changes to a different IP! I have everything set up correctly for static IP networking! Everything i use the command /etc/init.d/networking restart it corrects the problem and gives me the desired IP address! But after a while! It has a different IP address! The router i have is a apple airport extreme with DHCP enabled! I know how DHCP works and the computer has to send out an assignment request!
Is it possible that a daemond is sending DHCP assignment request every few hours and that is how it's changing! If so, How do i kill it? And if that is not the problem! What else can be the problem?
