In Ubuntu I have configured network through network manager.

Every thing is working fine.My machine is pinging self machine as well as remote machine. but file /etc/network/interfaces doesn't contain eth0 details.

I also looked into file /etc/networkmanager/networkmanager.conf but there is no entry for eth0 details.

So where does the network manager write network details??


Network Manager stores system-wide connection information in the /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections/ directory, with one file for each named connection. For eth0 it may have a default name such as Wired connection 1.

  • Can you tell me from where may i get BOOTPROTO information. Wired connection 1 doesn't contain BOOTPROTO information. – Virus Apr 20 '15 at 12:39
  • Trying to figure out what you mean in comments is difficult. As this isn't the question you asked at all, I suggest you ask a new question so others can help you clarify it. – Robie Basak Apr 20 '15 at 12:47
  • @RobieBasak: Actually network script files also contain BOOTPROTO information in other distributions. I am looking for same and i thought that if i get network details then that information will also be there. – Virus Apr 20 '15 at 12:50
  • Best to ask for what you want exactly. Ask a question "How do I find BOOTPROTO information for eth0" for example. – Robie Basak Apr 20 '15 at 17:13
