I get IPV6 address and no IPV4. Why?


Hello,

I'm using CentOS 4.4. On boot or './network restart' my eth0 gets an IPV4 address but eth1 does not. I can assign an IPv4 address by 'ifconfig eth0 69.109.23.9' but that's not permanent. Config files are similar aside from the obvious. Anyone know the solution to this?

Regards,
Eric S

Change "ADDR" above to "IPADDR".

Also, shouldn't those filenames be
/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth[0|1]?
