Connect to your Raspberry Pi with SSH
If you don’t know your IP address, you can either use the hostname. The ipscanner from my former post should help you finding out the IP address from your Raspberry Pi.
# ssh pi@yourIPaddress email@example.com's password: pi@raspberrypi ~ $ cd /etc/network pi@raspberrypi /etc/network $ sudo vi interfaces
The output should look similar like this.
auto lo iface lo inet loopback iface eth0 inet dhcp auto wlan0 allow-hotplug wlan0 iface wlan0 inet dhcp wpa-ssid "my-network-ssid" wpa-psk "my-wifi-password"
now change the line”iface lo inet loopback” to your demands:
iface eth0 inet static # your IP Address address 10.0.0.220 # your netmask netmask 255.255.255.0 # your router/modem used as your gateway gateway 10.0.0.138
Lines starting with `#’ are ignored. Note that end-of-line comments are NOT supported, comments must be on a line of their own.
Then make a reboot:
pi@raspberrypi ~ $ sudo reboot
Your Pi should reboot now with the new ip address.
pi@raspberrypi ~ $ man interfaces There is a good manual available for the interface.
The static Method
This method may be used to define Ethernet interfaces with statically allocated IPv4 addresses.
- address address Address (dotted quad/netmask) required
- netmask mask Netmask (dotted quad or CIDR)
- broadcast broadcast_address Broadcast address (dotted quad, + or -). Default value: “+”
- gateway address – Default gateway (dotted quad)
