This post by David Papkin will focus on setting IP addresses with Ubuntu Linux without the GUI
There are several ways to set an IP address in Linux.
Which connection do I use for my static IP?
So, lets have a look at our current network information, open a terminal and type/copy the following command:
This will show which interfaces are available. We will use eth3 for this post.
We will set eth3 IP address on 192.168.1.0/24 space
1) We can manually set the values using an editor such as vi or nano.
sudo vi /etc/network/interfaces
Some people may find vi difficult to use, so nano is an easier alternative, if your system has this utility installed.
sudo nano /etc/network/interfaces
After you edit /etc/network/interfaces file, you must restart the networkign service
sudo /etc/init.d/networking restart
2) you can use the ifconfig command to set the IP values
