    Failed to bring up eth0 (SIOCADDRT No such process)

    Hi,

    I have been trying to set up a Debian 5.0 server to run ISPConfig 3 as per this guide: http://howtoforge.com/perfect-server-debian-lenny-ispconfig3

    However, whenever I get to the step that sets up eth0 to use a static ip address I get the following error when trying to restart the network:

    Reconfiguring network interfaces...SIOCADDRT No such process
    Failed to bring up eth0
    done

    And after that my computer has no access to the internet at all. I have tried rebooting it to see if that made any difference, but it didn't.

    I would appreciate any help anyone can give.

    Thanks

    EDIT: Forgot to mention that it was working fine straight after the installation with dhcp

    Can you post the outputs of
    Code:
    ifconfig
    and
    Code:
    route -nee
    while you're uisng DHCP?

    same problem here...

    Hi Falko,

    I have the same issue with thread starter here. Any helps? initially i am trying to setup static wired network thru the GUI but the gateway keep resetting to 0.0.0.0. So i manually edit /etc/network/interfaces to my setting. After that i cant bring up the network anymore. :confused: I am new to ubuntu but already have certain knowledge on Redhat. Seem like Ubuntu distro not that stable as it should. Please help. Thanks.

    What's in /etc/network/interfaces? What's your router's internal IP?

    internal ip = 10.2.21.152
    netmask = 255.255.255.0
    gateway = 10.2.1.251

    interface
    =======
    auto lo
    iface lo inet loopback


    auto eth0
    iface eth0 inet static
    address 10.2.21.152
    netmask 255.255.255.0
    gateway 10.2.1.251

    I am using a dell vostro 1500 laptop. Could it be the driver issue?
    Somehow, there will be no issue if i use wireless. Please advise. Thanks.

    Does it work with DHCP? If so, can you enable DHCP again and post the outputs of
    Code:
    ifconfig
    and
    Code:
    route -nee
    ?
