MagPi 45: Static IP addressing

Thu Apr 28, 2016 10:14 am

In MagPi 45, #Predictable networking (p48-49) we are being told to set static network addresses in /etc/network/interfaces and
Check you’re using it by issuing the command:
cat /etc/network/interfaces. This should show,
amongst others, a line like iface eth0 inet dhcp,
No it doesn't! At least not since RPF Raspbian Jessie images started using dhcpcd5 and static addresses should be set in /etc/dhcpcd.conf
