Example of a network interface configuration file:
# Hardware configuration: UUID="46e26279-f69b-daf5-1b79-d03677b7178d" HWADDR=00:1C:C0:0D:36:C6 DEVICE="p1p1" TYPE="Ethernet" ONBOOT="yes" NAME=eth0 NM_CONTROLLED="no" # IPv4 configuration: BOOTPROTO="none" IPADDR0="192.168.1.100" PREFIX0="24" GATEWAY0="192.168.1.1" DNS1="192.168.1.53" DEFROUTE="yes" IPV4_FAILURE_FATAL="yes" # IPv6 configuration: IPV6INIT="yes" IPV6_AUTOCONF=yes IPV6_DEFROUTE=yes IPV6_FAILURE_FATAL=no IPV6_PEERDNS=yes IPV6_PEERROUTES=yes
- Can be set to
dhcpif the interface will be automatically configured by a DHCP server, or to
staticif the interface will have a static IP configuration, or to
- If set to
yes, then during the activation of the interface, a default route towards the associated gateway will be added on the system.
- The MAC Address of the interface, (
HWaddrin the output of
ifconfig), physically burnt on the device by the manufacturer.
- Whether or not the interface is controlled by the NetworkManager
service. If set to
no, the operation of the interface needs to be controlled elsewise, e.g. with running the
networkservice in the place of NetworkManager.
- Whether or not the interface should be activated automatically during system startup.
