boot up setup.


I need to enable eth1 every time system boots up. Would you let me know how to fix it permanently. Which file is it, how to use that?

Thanks for your knowledge.

Answers to you question would depend a lot on what Distro and version of Linux you have as well as how you are manually setting it up after the fact. Is it Ubuntu? RedHat? Suse? Are you trying to do DHCP or Static IP? What brand and model of network card? Is it wifi?

Hello qwbaby

What's your distribution?

Probably you want to change /etc/interfaces. There's a man page for interfaces. Do you want to configure a fixed IP address or get it from a DHCP server?

Best

It wouldn't be /etc/interfaces if it were RedHat/CentOS/Fedora. Probably others as well.

On Fedora cd /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts. In that directory there is an ifcfg-eth0 file that can be manually edited. Do NOT keep multiple copies in that directory (e.g. NO ifcfg-eth0.old).

Also You can run system-config-network from your GUI desktop on Fedora to set network parameters.
