Changing DHCP Network Address to Static IP Address in Ubuntu 12.04 LTS (Precise Pangolin)

By | 05/11/2012

To set a static IP address for for Ubuntu Precise Pangolin (12.04) LTS you need to edit the file /etc/network/interfaces to suit your network environment. In this example I will be using the 192.168.0.0/24 IP range with DNS Servers located at 192.168.0.1 and 192.168.0.2. The gateway is at 192.168.0.254. Be sure to change “domain.local” to match your domain or remove the line.

$ sudo vi /etc/network/interfaces
# This file describes the network interfaces available on your system
# and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5).

# The loopback network interface
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

# The primary network interface
auto eth0
iface eth0 inet static
 address 192.168.0.20
 netmask 255.255.255.0
 network 192.168.0.0
 broadcast 192.168.0.255
 gateway 192.168.0.254
 dns-nameservers 192.168.0.1 192.168.0.2
 dns-domain domain.local
