Problem

Debian out of the box comes with DHCP installed. How can I modify this into a setup with a static ip-address?

Environment

  • Debian

Solution

Modify /etc/network/interfaces, for example:

#iface eth0 inet dhcp
iface eth0 inet static
        address 192.168.123.9
        network 192.168.123.0
        netmask 255.255.255.0
        broadcast 192.168.123.255
        gateway 192.168.123.254
ifdown eth0  # You probably shouldn't do this if you're on a remote login
ifup eth0
