If you have ifconfig and netstat -in . Please post your output. Also, are you saying that you configure your lan card to come up at boot time, but there is a configuration file that you must modify too.

On my HPUX, there is a file /etc/rc.config.d/netconf which defines the lan number and IP address.

You may have a similar config file.

It would help if we knew a little about your system OS, config.

We have no file like \etc\rc.config.d\netconf in our Linux then what should we have to do.

Please continue to append to the same post for the same problem. It will help keep posts down and more coherent.


Please see other original post for answers.

Neo, can you or someone please merge this with the original post from the other day?

Please post configuration with netstat -rn

Your system will have some kind of configuration file for network.

Please post what you have when you configure it. Please use "netstat -rn" to show settings and ifconfig to configure network settings.

here is the manpage for ifconfig.

#man ifconfig (partial)
The first form of the ifconfig command assigns an address to a network interface and/or configures network interface parameters. ifconfig must be used at boot time to define the network address of each interface present on a machine. It can also be used at other times to redefine an interface's address or other operating parameters."

Done! Smilie

Please tell us what version of Linux you are running, and from which vendor. RedHat keeps its network configuration files in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts. Other vendors may be slightly different.
