RE ip address

I am trying to change the ip address on my linux box running SUSE 8.0.

On HPUX you can do manual alteration in /etc/rc.config.d/netconf where would the equivalent file be on linux.

I would rather do it this way rather yast2 or ifconfig.

Re: RE ip address


have a look at the /etc/sysconfig/network directory. There are the configuration files, e.g. ifcfg-eth0, which containes all configuration data for NIC eth0.

hope this helps
