I have changed the /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth1 to the same Ip info. ifdown eth1 and ifup eth1 and the ip stays 22.214.171.124 but the netmask changes to 248.0.0.0 and the Broadcast is 126.96.36.199. the only way i can get it to work is ifconfig eth1 188.8.131.52 netmask 255.255.255.0 and it will run untill reboot. any ideas?
When I was setting up my FC16 system I had problems with Net-Manager and the older RH
system-config-network-gui. You need to make sure the interface device name matches the
MAC hardware address of the interface you are tying to configure. There were times I was going
to just write my own script and disable the gui built scripts altogether. I was able to get things
to work between using the Netmanager (the applet in the upper right of the gnome desktop gui)
and system-config-network-gui. In order to insure you are updating the correct device p1p1 pip2 ..
eth1.. eth2 in system-config-network-gui edit the interface you want a dialog box comes up with 3 tabs
go to the tab labeled hardware press probe next to the Bind to MAC address field.
Also the actual Ethernet device names are different than what you may be used to. A Fedora enhancement to have device names reflect how the the actual hardware is configured. There are way
around this, see http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Featur...rkDeviceNaming
The command below can be use test your configuration without have to use a gui or reboot.
The service script still works here even though fedora system have adopted systemd for Linux system
service network restart
Hope this helps.
