Killing a process through terminal.
Hi guyz,

I'm just starting to learn Linux now and currently using Fedora Core 5.
So, the story goes like this, my internet connection unable to connect all the time due to the IP address keep changing.I'm connecting to the LAN to a server where a default IP is set for internet. but the IP keep changing everytime i reboot the system.So, mr experts..How can i solve this problem?

some suggestions
Do you have a DHCP service for your LAN? Your public IP shouldn't be changing like that. I would say to use 'ifconfig' and just set a static IP ie. 'ifconfig eth0 inet' Also check and see if your gateway is configured by typing 'route'. To add a gateway: 'route add default gw' the would be replaced by whatever your gateway is. Also check and see if IP addresses work in the address bar to get to the internet. If the IP's do but names don't add a DNS server to your /etc/resolv.conf ie. 'vi /etc/resolv.conf' then in the file 'nameserver' My wireless router serves as a gateway, dhcp server and dns server. so thats what i used in my expamles. also if you don't like vi you can use vim, or nano and there's probably some more. Hope that helps

Google 'dynamic DNS'. This is a scheme where you get a static IP name, that gets automatically updated to a new IP address whenever your host's IP changes. There may be free services that suit your requirements.
