IP address and gateway info

How can I change the IP address and gateway info on a unix server?

What version/vendor of Unix? Most systems use the 'ifconfig' and 'route' commands to do this. Check the man pages, or post more details here if you need more help.

In most unix distributions you can use command "route" to change your gateway
example: route add default gw {IP addr} {other options}
and command "ifconfig" to change your IP address
example: ifconfig {your device(my is eth0) } {IP addr}
