Hello It's 3 days me an my colleague are trying to install a small server in the office (for development purpose).
I downloaded the latest version of ubuntu server (12.04.3 64-bit) from the ubuntu site, and installed in a brand new PC. the PC is a Lenovo thinkcentre edge (72 i think but not sure).
Before going to the real installation I used the same ISO file to install a version in a Virtual machine using VirtualBox and everything went OK. So we proceed to the real installation.
during the installation the system was unable to auto configure the network so we did it manually:
ip 10.18.62.122 gateway 10.18.62.254 subnet 255.255.254.0
during the boot it says that the network is not up.
now, here is my /etc/network/interfaces file:
if I try to ping:
# This file describes the network interfaces available on your system
# and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5).
# The loopback network interface
iface lo inet looback
# The primary network interface
iface eth0 inet static
I get nothing, but nothing at all, until I do Ctrl-C
if I ping the gateway, I get from 10.18.62.122 (me) Destination Host Unreachable
so no internet but no Ethernet either.
I tried setting up the DNS also by modifying the file /etc/resolv.conf and also by adding
dns-nameservers 192.168.33.1 22.214.171.124
to /etc/network/interfaces file.
dns-nameservers 126.96.36.199 188.8.131.52
