Hi all, I have a server with a public facing IP.
When I tried to configure that static IP info on eth0, the subnet mask keeps getting changed to the ROUTER'S address when I save and exit.
ie, I type in
ip: 220.127.116.11 (not the real one)
mask : 255.255.255.248
gateway : 18.104.22.168 (not the real one)
But every time I save and come back to the screen later, the subnet mask is set to the gateway's number!!!!
mask : 22.214.171.124
gateway : 126.96.36.199
Finally I gave up trying to figure out why and thought to let it get a DHCP address for a minute so I could at least get out on the web to look the problem up. but that's not working either:
Although ping will successfully resolve an address
(ping google.com works, eg), no other program will, such as firefox. Why? domain names don't appeat to be resolving for any other apps.
I can't remember how to set the subnet mask with ifconfig, so no I haven't tried that.
Any idea what I should try?
Thanks for your time!
