    How do I configure a static IP address on a Debian Lenny server?

    I thought that was the correct information.
    # The primary network interface
    # allow-hotplug eth0
    #iface eth0 inet dhcp
    auto eth0
    iface eth0 inet static
    It does not allow me to actually connect to the internet. I can get this setup in my Ubuntu Desktop just fine. Any ideas on what I am missing?

    This is the output of ifconfig:
    eth0      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 00:11:85:ea:d2:d2  
              inet addr:  Bcast:  Mask:
              inet6 addr: fe80::211:85ff:feea:d2d2/64 Scope:Link

    Are the netmask and gateway correct? Did your hoster give you these details?

    Here's a useful network calculator:
