Re: Specifying a static I.P. address for a Fedora 8 box - having issues

Hi List;

At this point I can ssh/scp to/from the server via 192.168.1.71 however I cannot get anywhere on the web. If I try and ping google I get this:

# ping www.google.com
ping: unknown host www.google.com

Now if I change the settings back to automatically get an IP via dhcp, and restart the network then I can ping www.google.com and get a reply.


What am I doing wrong here?
Nothing is wrong. But the DHCP automatically setup the DNS entry automatically. If you setup a static IP, you will have to add the DNS entry as well.

ping 64.233.169.99

will work without the DNS entry.
