View Full Version : [ubuntu] How to setup networking on 8.04 w/o GUI?

August 12th, 2009, 03:37 PM
I've installed Ubuntu 9.04 (GUI) and Ubuntu 8.04.2 Server (no GUI) on ESXi 3.5 U4. This is connected to a P2P network (10.10.0.xxx)

How do I setup networking on 8.04.2 so I have Internet access and P2P access from the command line?

On 9.04 and 8.04 the /etc/network/interfaces file contains:
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

Screen shot is ifconfig of 9.04. ifconfig of 8.04 lists loopback only.

Thanks much.

See my sig, the part about no network managers.
