Hi, simple question that I cannot seem to find an answer for by searching. During initial setup, I chose IP addresses for green and blue NICs such that they would not overlap with my existing internal network setup. This way, I could test the interface without having to worry about overlapping dhcp assignments. However, now I’d actually like to use IPFire as my gateway, and I cannot figure out how to change the IP address assignments for eth1…ethn. I am used to the networking layout of Ubuntu/Debian systems, and for the life of me can’t find these settings either in the UI or in /etc/. Do I need to re-install from scratch to change IP addresses? That seems extreme! Please let me know how I can proceed. Thanks much!
Hello crw! Welcome to the IPFire Community!
go to Terminal and SSH into the IPFire box. At the command prompt enter
look for Address Settings.
Thank you! I ran
setup, changed the IP addresses, and now things are working as expected. I did have to manually re-write the dhcpd.conf file with the new IP address range, but that was pretty easy. I’ve plugged in my IPFire box and it is working great. Thanks!
