How to configure a 2nd NIC card on Ubuntu Server 10.04
Posted on 2012-03-14
I have to configure a Linux system as a web server and my choice is Ubuntu Server v.10.04. I installed it with a single NIC card (the server is VM and initial setup was with single NIC card) and installed GUI as well. Later on I added a 2nd NIC card, I booted up Ubuntu Server with GUI and when I run ifconfig on the command line I can see both Eth0 (default NIC that I setup during the initial OS setup) and Eth1 however I couldn't figure out how to manually configure the IP settings on eth1. I'm new to Linux and any help will be greatly appreciated.
