http://www.linuxquestions.org – Hi, Recently I set up a Debian server following this guide: http://www.howtoforge.org/perfect-se...nny-ispconfig3 However I wasn't able to connect to the internet after the clean install of debian. So I googled and found a fix: ifconfig eth0 192.168.15.x route add -net netmask gw 192.168.15.y Where x is a number not in use by any machine Where y is the number on the gateway These commands are appended to /etc/rc.d/rc.local and works fine. The server is virtual and running on a vmware installation. The problem, I have, appears randomly after the server has been startet. (HowTos)
