Full Version: How to configure a static IP address in Vyatta
You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.
Whilst Vyatta is based off Debian, it uses methods for configuration much similar to the way you would configure a switch or a router. Therefore, simply editing the network/interfaces file won't actually work for you.

Firstly to enter the configuration mode:

Quote:configure

Assuming you want to configure eth0 as something like this:

ip 192.168.0.214
netmask 255.255.255.0
gateway 192.168.0.254
nameserver 168.8.8.8

Your commands will be the following:

Quote:set interfaces ethernet eth0 address 192.168.0.214/24

this sets the IP address and the CDIR denotes the netmask, then

Quote:set system gateway-address 192.168.0.254

This sets the gateway, then

Quote:set system name-server 168.8.8.8

sets the nameserver for dns.

You may also consider

Quote:set service ssh

to allow SSH connections.

In order to save the config, you must first

Quote:commit

then make sure you

Quote:save


Once you reboot you can check your configuration with the following:

Quote:show interfaces
