We have a sandbox server running CentOS that we run inside our office. Our ISP has assigned us a block of 5 static IPs. We now want to assign it a static IP.
DEVICE=eth0 BOOTPROTO=none # have also tried "static" here HWADDR=00:13:72:*:*:* ONBOOT=yes TYPE=Ethernet NETMASK=255.255.255.0 IPADDR=173.*.*.161 GATEWAY=10.1.10.1
/etc/resolv.cnf is also set with the appropriate name servers from our ISP.
ifdown eth0 then
ifup eth0 I get...
SIOCADDRT: Network is unreachable
When I switch to DCHP, the machine has an IP assigned and there are no connection problems.
