I am using lubuntu 13.04 on a VirtualBox with a briged adapter. I want to make the IP of my VM static, I looked up on how to do this and many results came up.
I went on and edited the interfaces file so now it looks like this:
#interfaces(5) file used by ifup(8) and ifdown(8) auto lo iface lo inet loopback #Added by me auto eth0 iface eth0 inet static address 192.168.1.99 netmask 255.255.255.0 gateway 192.168.1.1
When I restart the VM the IP is changed to 192.168.1.99, but I have no network connectivity.
What am I missing?
