Ping Returns "timeout for icmp_seq"
I recently got a new VPS but when i tried to ssh in i couldn't, so i pinged the IP and got
"Request timeout for icmp_seq"
After contacting technical staff they said there was a problem on startup, and i was to use the console provided and "fsck", i messed around with this for a while then contacted technical help again and they replied.
"It's pinging now. Error in your interfaces file, I've manually configured the eth0 for you but make sure to edit /etc/network/interfaces."
And indeed it was pinging, so i rebooted the machine and then it went back to the way it was. So im assumingin doing so i have reset the file back to the broken version and thus i have to edit the interfaces file to make it work again, this is new to me so can anyone offer any suggestions.
My current interfaces file:
iface eth0 inet static
iface lo inet loopback
