How To Configure Static IP Address In Linux

Configure By Editing Configuration Files

Step1:Add a new configuration file named ifcfg-eth<x>. ('x'  is number order of NIC card).  Here create ifcfg-eth0 in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/
[root@server ~#]vi /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0
#Add your address settings in below format
DEVICE=eth0
IPADDR=192.168.10.50
NETMASK=255.255.255.0
BOOTPROTO=static
ONBOOT=yes
GATEWAY=192.168.10.1
DNS1=192.168.10.2
DNS2=192.168.10.3
#save the file

Step2: restart network to take effect new ipaddress
[root@server ~#]service network restart

Step3: verify the new ip address
[root@server ~#]ifconfig eth0

To set as DHCP client

Step1:Add a new configuration file in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/
[root@server ~#]vi /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0
#add there lines
DEVICE=eth0
BOOTPROTO=dhcp
ONBOOT=yes

Step2: restart network
[root@server ~#]service network restart

Step3: verify the new ip address
[root@server ~#]ifconfig eth0
