    Hi all, I'm a total Linux novice and have installed Fedora 4 on a dedicated PC. I can't access the internet and have checked all the settings and they seem to be right. The cabling is fine and my router and switch are fine. Is there a similar command to ipconfig/all to use in Linux as I want to see if an IP through DHCP has been assigned which I think is the problem but can't work out how to find the IP settings out.

    type ifconfig eth0

    as the root user


    if its not getting a dchp address you need to do the following


    ifconfig eth0 123.123.123.123 netmask 255.255.255.0
    route add default gateway 123.123.123.1
    echo "nameserver 123.123.123.10" >> /etc/resolv.conf

    I haven't tried it yet I'm reinstalling Linux on a smaller hard drive. When you mentioned ifconfig it rang a bell I'll give it a go and will let you know.
