I've installed F10. My machine has been assigned a static address. So I want to setup my machine to use the static address. I changed /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifup-eth0 and it looks like this:
# Broadcom Corporation NetXtreme II BCM5708 Gigabit Ethernet
Then I said /sbin/service NetworkManger restart to restart the eth0 interface. However, In that little network icon on the top right of the screen (next to date), I get two options: Auto Ehternet and System eth0.
For some reason, after restarting it always goes to Auto Ethernet and the machine uses DHCP to get a new IP. If I click on system Eth0, the machine gets the static IP.
1. I always want to use the static IP. How can I set this in Fedora so that it never does Auto Ethernet? What preference/config file do I have to set?
2. In static IP mode, I'm having problems with DNS name resolution. If I say nslookup a.b.c.d it can't find any information. nslookup works fine in DHCP. How can I fix this with the static IP case?
I had specified the DNS servers in the DNS tab in Network but they don't seem to be helping...
I appreciate any quick response. I've wasted a day trying to solve these issues.
