Hi guys. This is my first time with Debian and I have a couple questions. I was supposed to get Vsphere access for my VPS but they forgot so I'm a bit stuck at step 1 since if I screw up the ip I'm out of luck until support gets my Vsphere access going. The tutorial at vi /etc/network/interfaces says to use the internal ip but all I have is an external ip or connected straight to the internet. In ifconfig I have an inet addr and a Bcast. I assume I use the inet addr where he uses 192.168.0.100 correct? The second thing is, he uses server1.example.com as the machine name. Mine is simple and my hosts is Code: 126.96.36.199 CloudVPS.localdomain CloudVPS At this step, is my name okay or does it need to be a something.com? I really appreciate the help since I don't know when I get my Vsphere access and would really like to get this going over the weekend while I have the time. Thank you!
