Hi all,

How do i set up static IP on fedora 9 and it stays on when it reboots?

I tried ifconfig --- Works, but does not stay on when it reboots

I tried to edit /etc/sysconfig/network-scipts/ifcfg-eth0, but when it reboots, it's not the right IP.

Even during installation, i set up as static ip (192.168.0.253), when it finished instalaltion and reboot, the ip address is 192.168.0.95 instead of 192.168.0.253
i checked the ifcfg-eth0 file, it stated 192.168.0.253

Please help

you need to run it from command line not gui (e.g. if you ssh or telnet to the system remotely or from the console login from text based terminal)

If this is a home configuration, I think the router-modem sets a range like from 64-255 or something like that...
range-DHCP

Hi there,
se
i found out the problem..

Network manager service is the problem..

I have to disabled NetworkManager service and restart "network service" and my static Ip config picks in :) and it stays when it reboots.
