What permissions does this have?

Try ls -l /etc/network/interfaces

Your command is attempting to execute a file named "interfaces" in the directory "/etc/network". Was that your intent?

Try ls -l /etc/network/interfaces
I think you want: "ls -l /etc/network". For example, if "interfaces" is a directory, then you'll get info only on the **contents**.

There is of course "ls -lR" to get the complete picture.

The command ls -l was just to view the rights shown on that particular file.

Are you using Network Manager?

Or are you setting up for a static IP Address?
