Fallback on static network configuration if dhcp fails
Posted on 2006-07-12
I run Debian testing (etch) on my machine.
I have set up another machine that acts as dhcpd server.
Now I want my first machine to get its ip-address and so on from the dhcpd server. But if that server is down I want it to fallback to a static configuration. I use the /etc/network/interface file.
I cannot find any documentation on how to do that. But it must be possible, or?
