SDN 101: An Introduction to Software Defined Networking
Discover the advantages of SDN.
SDN has quickly become one of the hottest trends in IT. But not all SDN solutions offer real software-defined functionality. As more enterprises consider SDN, they want to know, “What is SDN? And what are the real benefits?” If you're ready to explore the advantages of SDN, and want to know how it should be implemented within your enterprise, start by reading our introductory white paper.

Which distro are you using? See if you have a /etc/sysconfig/network/ifcfg-eth0 file. You need to su to root to edit it. ( Note: I'm guessing that your interface is named eth0 )
Change the IP address listed after "IPADDR=".
from the ifcfg.template file:
# If using a static configuration you have to set an IP address and a netmask
# or prefix length. The following examples are equivalent:
# 1) IPADDR=192.168.1.1
# 2) IPADDR=192.168.1.1
# PREFIXLEN=24 # NETMASK will be ignored
# 3) IPADDR=192.168.1.1/24 # NETMASK and PREFIXLEN will be ignored
Can someone help me and tell me how to implement this on Ubuntu? I have been taking a look at /etc/sysctl.conf, /etc/init.d/networking and the different files in /etc/network but I haven't yet been able to figure out how to do this permanently.
so edit ifcfg-eth0 (post it if you still need help)
Thanks for the help. Even after the updatedb nothing was found: even tried a find . -name and left it for 2 hours to come back with no such file.
However, I found what I was looking for: as it turns out, Ubuntu systems use /etc/network/interfaces to maintain ip addresses and all, and so I edited that file manually and could get the system to change its ip address.
