The easiest way to set up a fixed IP in Ubuntu!
Posted Jun 15, 2020 • 1 min read
Because the mouse sharing software needs to use a network connection, the IP of the desktop always changes, and the laptop will have to reconfigure the IP every time it restarts. So I set a fixed IP for ubuntu. The method is very simple, just configure it directly in the system settings.
1. View the default network configuration
Open the system "Setting", open "Network":
My wired network:
Start the terminal, "ifconfig" check the mask:
Record your configuration here, which will be used later:
- IPv4:ip address
- Default Route:Gateway address
- DNS:I have 2 DNS
2. Add fixed IP manually
Open the Network "Setting", the interface may be different:
Click "IPv4", the Address option is set to "Manual" manual mode, other configurations are as follows:
- Set a static IP. In order to prevent conflicts with other students computers, I set an address of 210, namely:192.168.0.210. It is recommended that you also set a 200+ address
- Other Netmask, Gateway, DNS are the same as before
After configuring, click "Apply" in the lower right corner, then restart the computer and it's ok!
