Redhat 9 auto-dhcp on static interface


Howdy,

I've just installed a RH9 server image with no GUI on a p5 to be be used as a firewall/router.

I've set up eth0 as my static local interface, but every couple of hours it decides to defer to dhcp and resets its configuration.

Here's the contents of /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0

Code:
DEVICE=eth0
BOOTPROTO=static
BROADCAST=192.168.69.255
IPADDR=192.168.69.1
NETMAST=255.255.255.0
NETWORK=192.168.69.0
ONBOOT=yes
Has networking config changed in RH9? Am I missing something? I've also checked my cron directories and there doesn't seem to be anything that would cause this to happen. What on earth is going on?

cheers
Rich

try to configure your network with netconfig:
netconfig
netconfig eth1
..
