Assiging an IP adrress static and DHCP in ubuntu

Dynamic IP Address Assignment (DHCP Client)

To configure your server to use DHCP for dynamic address assignment, add the dhcp method to the inet address family statement for the appropriate interface in the file /etc/network/interfaces. The example below assumes you are configuring your first Ethernet interface identified as eth0.

auto eth0
iface eth0 inet dhcp

Static IP Address Assignment

To configure your system to use a static IP address assignment, add the static method to the inet address family statement for the appropriate interface in the file /etc/network/interfaces. The example below assumes you are configuring your first Ethernet interface identified as eth0. Change the address, netmask, and gateway values to meet the requirements of your network.

auto eth0
iface eth0 inet static
address 10.0.0.100
netmask 255.255.255.0
gateway 10.0.0.1
network 10.0.0.0
broadcast 10.0.0.255
dns-nameservers 8.8.8.8 8.8.4.4  

By adding an interface configuration as shown above, you can manually enable the interface through the ifup command.

sudo ifup eth0

To manually disable the interface, you can use the ifdown command.

sudo ifdown eth0


# sudo /etc/init.d/networking restart
