$> cat /etc/network/interfaces # This file describes the network interfaces available on your system # and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5). # The loopback network interface auto lo iface lo inet loopback # The primary network interface allow-hotplug eth0 iface eth0 inet static address 192.168.1.99 gateway 192.168.1.1 netmask 255.255.255.0 network 192.168.1.0 broadcast 192.168.1.255
$> sudo /etc/init.d/networking restart Reconfiguring network interfaces...done. $> sudo ifconfig eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:e0:03:09:05:2e inet addr:192.168.1.205 Bcast:255.255.255.255 Mask:255.255.255.0 ...
Where is it being told to use dhcp?
