Ubuntu Networking Configure network interface from CLI


Example

You could use ethtool, but they are not going to be reboot persistent. If you want to achieve this, edit the following file:

sudo vim /etc/network/interfaces

And edit the file with needed informations:

auto <interface_name>
iface <interface_name> inet static
address <ip_address>
netmask <netmask>
network <network>
gateway <gateway>
dns_nameservers <server_1> <server_2> <server_n>
dns_naesearch <server_name>

Then restart interface to make changes running:

sudo ifdown <interface_name> && sudo ifup <interface_name>
