Default Re: Having Problems Configuring My Router For Server

first of all your going to configure /etc/network/interfaces
(if your using ubuntu) using ssh or using vim / vi / nano on the server

if this is your first time id suggest using nano

"sudo nano /etc/network/interfaces" <--- this will get you to configure the interfaces.

I would suggest having a static ip of the server on the internal network,
a quick google search of "ubuntu server static ip" should help you of that

when your done use the command "Ctrl + O" to save,
it will ask you which file to save, you sould save over interfaces

When your done with configuring you should restart the server and to make sure its working type in "ifconfig"(<-- in the server/ssh) this should tell you the ip of the server.

You HAVE to be root (by account or using sudo/ su) if you dont you WONT be able to save over the existing "interfaces"
