I have installed debian on my old computer and assigned a static IP address to it through
However when I boot my server the settings in the interfaces file are lost.
Only when I restart networking interfaces using
/etc/init.d/networking restart, the settings are loaded. They don't load automatically on server boot up. What's the problem?
My interfaces file is like this
auto lo iface lo inet loopback auto eth0 iface eth0 inet static address 192.168.1.42 netmask 255.255.255.0 gateway 192.168.1.1
