I have just installed a fresh copy of CentOs 6.4 on a dedicated server. I'm new to linux and trying to learn it. The dedicated server has no network connectivity (I can't ping any hostnames or IP addresses).
If I run route it is empty.
My /ifcfg-eth0 contains the following:
DEVICE=eth0 TYPE=Ethernet UUID=c3100ae4-7059-4307-bc40-dc37e989792e ONBOOT=yes NM_CONTROLLED=yes BOOTPROTO=none HWADDR=00:25:90:D3:1A IPADDR=76.164.xxx.xxx(This is set at the IP I was given as the main server IP. Should this be the block rather than the single IP I was given?) PREFIX=29 GATEWAY=76.164.xxx.xxx (This was given to me by the host) NETMASK = 255.255.255.248 DNS1=126.96.36.199. DNS2=188.8.131.52 DEFROUTE=yes IPV4_FAILURE_FATAL=yes IPV6INIT=no NAME="System eth0"
ifconfig eth0 outputs the following:
Link Encap: Ethernet HWaddr 00:25:90:D3:1A:AC inet 6 addr: f e80::225:90ff:fed3:1aac/64 Scope:Link UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1 Rx Packets:56 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0 Tx Packets: 12 error:0 dropped: 0 overruns:0 carrier:0 collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000 RX bytes:3360 (3.2KiB) Tx bytes:2520 (2.4 KiB) Memory: f7200000-f7280000
What do I do now to get the network working? Any help would be appreciated :)
Okay. No idea what changed but on restart the network service I can now ping google. My route looks like this: Is this as it should be?
