you need to configure your interfaces file.
Depening on your distribution it'll be called /etc/network/interfaces, or something similar.

example:

auto eth0
iface eth0 inet static
address 10.0.0.1
netmask 255.255.255.0
network 10.0.0.0
broadcast 10.0.0.255
gateway 10.0.0.138

linux 9 is not a distribution.
type man interfaces. that will tell you where you can find your interfaces file

Hi zameer_india,

be patient and don't be confused...........

Ok, now come to your ethernet card configuration,

I think u might be using Red Hat 9, plz. check it by looking at message show and boot time , and u can even check this by runing these commands

#dmesg |grep version

#cat /etc/issue.net

#uname -r

and show me the output and try to find your self also through these commands output...


now run as a root show me the output of this command
do the following things as a root,

#ifconfig

and now steps to configure network card

#vi /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0

DEVICE=eth0
BOOTPROTO=static
IPADDR= <enter the ip address of the system>
NETMASK=255.255.255.0 (set it according to ur ip)
NETWORK=192.168.1.0 (set it according to ur ip)
BROADCAST=192.168.1.255 (set it according to ur ip)
ONBOOT=yes
MII_NOT_SUPPORTED=yes
GATEWAY=192.168.1.1 (set it according to ur ip)

#/etc/init.d/network restart

#ifconfig

now try pinging other system on the netwok


--return back ??
