Change IP address

You can change ip address using ifconfig command itself. To set IP address 192.168.1.5, enter command:

# ifconfig eth0 192.168.1.5 netmask 255.255.255.0 up
# ifconfig eth0

To make permanent changes to IP address you need to edit configuration file according to your Linux distribution.
