Linux command to assign an ip address


Hi everyone

I am Saira Babu and i am studying computer science. Here is my question: You are logged in to a machine called monroe,it has two ethernet cards, the first card is already configured with ip address 192.168.200.104.

Give a Linux command to assign an ip address of 192.168.22.158 to the second card

Give another command to add a default gateway (with ip address 192.168.22.1) to your routing table

yes both are same but small differance...
At first which distribution u use...
In redhat/fedora u can use the command..

for u r second nic card u can use the command
/sbin/ifconfig eth1 192.160.22.158
but it's temporary solution., that means when u reboot the machine ,second nic card ip address empty again.

so ..

#netconfig -d eth1

then

#service network restart

it is the parmanent solution.

Seb22 - we are not your homework site. If we give you the answers we are working against your teachers who are trying to get you to learn. We are, therefore, doing you and your school a disservice. The point of you getting homework is so that you can reinforce what you have been told at school and so you can learn to research answers on your own. The point of an exam is so that you can prove that you have taken in and understood the subject.

It is explicitly written that you should not ask us to do your homework for you.
