There are two methods to assign network configuration to a device on the net. DHCP or static assignment. DHCP is normally set as default. Static configurations usually need IP addresses as well as DNS resolvers plus routing. In this tutorial, we will cover Linux static configuration on Ubuntu 16.04.


Step 1: Log in using SSH

You must be logged in via SSH as sudo or root user. Please read  this article  for instructions if you don’t know how to connect.

Step 2: Find the active network interface

Step 3: configure the network interface.

In our example, our network interface is ens18 with the following network details:

Our article will use network interface ens18 and the server details described above. Your server details will not be the same as our article and your network interface name can be different then we use in our article. Use the network interface name you get from step 2.

Edit your network configuration file

It should be similairto this configuration

Replace the above two lines to use statc IPv4 instead of DHCP

Apply the changes

Congratulations, you have now configured a static IPv4 for your Ubuntu 16.04 Operating System. If you need to configure static IPv6 for your Ubuntu 16.04 use this article .

Configure static IP address on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS Server

Ubuntu 16.04 has been out for just over a month now, and I’m in the process of upgrading some boxen. In some cases I’ve been completely reinstalling them for that clean fresh feel, and find myself once again having to configure static IP addresses.

Doing this can be problematic (made worse by the fact that even the official Ubuntu LTS documentation doesn’t give correct advice), particularly when it comes to DNS resolution, and in my case, a very-old-school habit of blindly wanting to edit the /etc/resolv.conf file which you really should not be doing any more these days.

Step 1. Edit the /network/interfaces file

sudo nano /etc/network/interfaces

In this case, look for the line in the file that says “# The primary network interface” and directly beneath this you’ll see something like ( the default DHCP configuration ):

If you’ve been using previous versions of Ubuntu you might have noticed that the interface name above “ens160” looks a bit odd. It used to be called “eth0” or “eth1”, but as from Ubuntu 15.10 the interface name is now allocated based on a few other factors – read more about that here if you’re interested .

Simply comment, remove or edit the line that says ends with “dhcp” and add the following information ( here’s an example only ):

Next you’ll want to add the nameservers by adding the line “dns-nameservers” followed by a list of IP addresses.  A lot of people use Google’s public DNS, or if you have details from your service provide use them instead.

PRO-TIP: Double-check the file again, and ensure all details are correct, before proceeding.  If you are configuring a remote system you could easily cut yourself off if you get it wrong.

Save the file, and you’re done.

Step 2. Restart the networking service (or reboot)

Once you are confident the change has been made, and if you don’t want to reboot you can just restart the networking service.

After doing this, and provided you don’t get any errors, your primary network interface should now be configured with the static IP address details you have provided.

Failing that, a reboot will also do the trick quite nicely, and with the current version of 16.04 I suspect there’s a bug that is causing “ifconfig -a” not to update unless you perform a reset.

Good luck, and may your boxen be correctly addressed.

yo lo uso asi

iface em1 inet static address netmask network broadcast gateway dns-nameservers

Excuse me in 16.4 I under/etc/network/interfaces configured in the static IP, I again using ifconfig IP display is another IP.In interfaces configured to complete is invalid, what reason is this

Thanks for the g8 article . Surprisingly I don’t have iface ens160 inet dhcp inside this path etc/network/interfaces. I have 16.04 ubuntu.

Thank you 🙂

The “ens160” reference for the Ethernet interface can vary from system to system, so just substitute with whatever you have.

It’s the oddest thing. If I edit the network adapters config file using a the CLI or SSH it does not work and I lose all network connectivity, the interface actually disappears. If I install a GUI and Sudo edit the file (open terminal in the GUI, type ‘sudo nautilus’ then browse to the file’s location and edit) it works. I scrapped 4 VMs before finding this “recipe.” Weird or what?

After following this “helpful guide” my adapter has disappeared as well. Made all my changes via the command line as well.

Should not need gui tools to edit this file! What the hell did the Ubuntu Team do? Good Grief!!!

OK Googled the fix: Don’t delete the “auto enpwtf” line above the iface line or your network adapter will disappear!

Thanks for that! Super helpful – server working great now.

I tried to restart networking by doing but the old DHCP address persisted. Rebooting gave me the new static address however. Is “service” deprecated? If so, invoking it silently does nothing – no diagnostic.

Yes “service” isn’t the right thing to use anymore, you could also try this:

sudo systemctl restart NetworkManager.service

Concise and informative. Worked for me. Thank you.

Thank you worked perfectly

I followed these steps but still gets host unreachable anytime I ping using the configured IP address to see my ubuntu server can be reached. Please help

Thanks.. very helpful

For those who have experimented problems with Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (networking service restart didn’t work):

ip addr flush ens160 && ifdown ens160 && ifup ens160

That did the trick for me 😉

Hi, In my /etc/network/interfaces, I didn’t see any ethernet-like interface. Look:

Can you help to tell me how to configure it to be static ip? Thanks!

thanks Michael McKinnon, i want to run my Ubuntu 16.04 from two IP address and

please give me any suggestion.

Hi there, sorry for the delay in responding.

To achieve this you can simply repeat the “iface inet static” section for the second address you wish to add in the /etc/network/interfaces file.

Alternatively if you just wanted to add a second IP address (known as an alias) temporarily while the system is running it’s also very easy to do something like “sudo ifconfig eth0:1” – this will create a new “alias” interface called eth0:1 (the :1 addon indicates this) – and to turn it off “sudo ifconfig eth0:1 down”.

If you’re not sure what interfaces the system has use “ifconfig -a” for a full list, or “ifconfig -s” for a short list.

Thanks Michael,

the “sudo ifconfig enp2s2:1” is working fine for me

but the below code in /etc/network/interfaces is not working. i am using Ubuntu 16.04

auto lo enp2s2 iface lo inet loopback iface enp2s2 inet static address netmask gateway

iface enp2s2:1 inet static address netmask gateway

At the top of your interfaces file modify the “auto lo enp2s2” line to read “auto lo enp2s2 enp2s2:1” – this tells the network configuration which interfaces to bring up at boot time.

On freshly installed 16.04.5 I lost a good hour before realizing I had to rem out _both_ of the first 2 lines. I don’t know if I accidentally deleted the 2nd “#” or if it was never there. This issue appears to only interfere with static IP assignment, not DHCP.

ditto – it was never there(!)

This is very helpful


Thank you, I’m glad it helped 🙂

brother i put primary network interface ip and am not able to ping and open in web console first i was not able to login with root user then i tried sudo su and make it super user i want to load zabbix

I had to change the IP address in the /etc/hosts file as well

How to set static IP Address in Ubuntu Server 16.04

It is really important to know how to configure static IP Address on Ubuntu Server, Because it is almost impossible to run a server without a static IP Address.

During the installation, Ubuntu Server by default configured to use dynamic IP Address. In this Tutorial we are going to learn how to set static IP Address in Ubuntu Server 16.04.

Following are the steps we are going to follow

Check Available Network Interfaces on Ubuntu Server

First of all you need to get the list of available network interfaces on your Ubuntu Server 16.04. We can use ip link show command to find available network interfaces on Ubuntu Linux.

ip link show

You should get the similar output as below screenshot shows.

Check Available Network Interfaces on Ubuntu Server

As above image shows, Our Ubuntu Server has Ethernet interfaces called enp0s3. Next we'll set static IP address to the enp0s3 interface.

Set static IP Address to the network interface

For this example I am going configure enp0s3 Ethernet interfaces with following ip configuration

IP Address =

Network mask =

Default gateway =

DNS Server = and

On Ubuntu server, in order to set static IP address we need to add IP configuration to the /etc/network/interfaces file. So open the /etc/network/interfaces file using a command line text editor (You can use vim or nano on Ubuntu Server).

vim /etc/network/interfaces

Then set static IP address as follows.

First line of configuration should be the word "auto" followed by the interface name (This brought up the network interface automatically when system boot or when networking restart).

auto enp0s3

The next line should specify whether to use static IP address or dhcp ip on the enp0s3 network interface. In our case it should be static.

iface enp0s3 inet static

Then add the static IP configuration as follows.





Restart Networking Service

After setting up IP Configuration, we need to restart Ubuntu networking service.

sudo ip addr flush enp0s3 && sudo systemctl restart networking.service

Verify the static IP configuration.

After restarting network, use ip add command to make sure that static ip address has been assigned to the network interface.

set static IP Address in Ubuntu Server 16.04

Then send ICMP request to a remote host to check the connectivity.

ping -c 4 google.com

send ICMP request to a remote host to check the connectivity

Configure Multiple Network Interfaces

Same Way you can configure multiple network interface on ubuntu server using /etc/network/interfaces file.

In the following example, I have set static IP Address on two network interfaces (enp0s3 and enp0s8).

auto enp0s8

iface enp0s8 inet static


*** Most important thing when configuring multiple interface is you cannot set multiple default gateways. Only one interface should configure with the default gateway. For other interfaces you should add default gateway using static routes.

Summary : Set Static IP Ubuntu Server 16.04

In this tutorial we learned how to set static ip address in Ubuntu server 16.04.

How do I set a static IP in Ubuntu?

I am a new with Linux, having years experience with Windows servers/desktops and am having issues setting a static IP. I am using a method used for previous versions of Ubuntu, which doesn't seem to work with 16.04

I have used the command sudo nano /etc/network/interface and added the following

I have rebooted the system and the Ethernet is pretty much dead, ping doesn't work at all. I have tried to modify /etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf and made the following changes

With this I can get Ethernet to work sporadically, however it eventually fails.

I have tried this configuration on two other machines plus a virtual machine as well and all have the same results. I can confirm these settings work fine when I install Windows on any of these machines. As well when I let DHCP auto configure, everything works fine no issues.

I figure I am missing something here, setting up a static IP should not be difficult at all.

I had the same problem and this was my solution:

and paste (altering for your network) this under # The primary network interface :

You can get correct interface name using Terminal command ifconfig -a on ubuntu 16.04 or ip address on 18.04+

Shutdown your Virtual Machine and then!!! Go to network settings and click on refresh MAC address button a few times :)

enter image description here

and start your VM and you should get internet!

UPDATE 20.02.2019

For ubuntu 18.04+ you need to edit this file

lewis4u's user avatar

Setting the static IP address as above in the accepted answer here works, but one has to flush the old IP addr setting and then restart networking.service:

Then verify it is correct:

Grant's user avatar

David Foerster's user avatar

sudo vim /etc/network/interfaces

sudo ifdown eth0 && sudo ifup eth0

Kevin Bowen's user avatar

I had the same problem and the solution "was" simply... for me, at least.

And, create an empty file with the name of the network interface in:

It works...

Manu's user avatar

I had the same problem and this was my solution: Remove all empty lines at the end of the file /etc/network/interface .

Videonauth's user avatar

If your server is showing that old IP as well as new assigned IP, simply restart your server. It will automatically flush old IP and persist the new one. And if you don't want to restart your server, use this command:

sudo ip addr flush <your-interface-here>

Philippe Delteil's user avatar

Run this simple commands to see if your network interface(s) are set to come up when the machine boots / restarts.

If no lines are printed to standard output, then open /etc/network/interfaces with a text editor (vi, nano, sed) and hopefully you will see something similar to the image below below.

A default /etc/network/interfaces file

Obviously, if grep did not return any lines to the terminal window, the format of your /etc/network/interfaces cannot be very similar at all. :-) However, follow the format of the auto lines.


Now, on your machine .

Don't know which interface names are available? Run this command.

The following command will return just the names of the network interfaces.

enter image description here

I used to set static IPs on my Ubuntu machines and then I noticed that I can just assign the IP address using my router. This may be the simplest solution. Just log in to your router, find the attached devices, and assign the IP address there.

Set a static IP address on an Ubuntu 16 or older system

These instructions are for Ubuntu 16 and older. If you have another operating system, please consult documentation to learn how to adjust those to a static IP address.

Please note that this guide does not allow you to just arbitrarily set any public IP address on the Internet, you can't just pick and choose an IP address on the Internet. It has to be assigned to you by your service provider and has to be available for use before you can use it. And on cloud environments, generally you are not supposed to touch the operating system network configuration at all, since attaching and assigning a public IP address is generally handled in the cloud management web portal, and not in the OS itself, in most cases. But for deployments on a local network or a private network, and you need to set a static IP for the operating system that runs the Access Server software, this guide will be useful.

We also assume that you do not use the Ubuntu program NetworkManager. If you do, and you have a GUI on your server, you may want to instead do it via the GUI. But if you have a headless server running on a physical server, or on HyperV, ESXi, and so on, you can use this guide to set a static IP address. The process is relatively straightforward, there is a text file that contains the configuration for your network interfaces. Adjust it to look like the sample below and adjust the addresses to match your network and your desired static IP. We assume an IPv4 address because at the moment this documentation section was written the Access Server only supported incoming OpenVPN tunnel connections on IPv4.

Changing the network interface settings could mean you lose network access to this system if you make a mistake. So be aware of this and either beforehand make a backup of your Access Server settings or make a snapshot if possible in your hypervisor or cloud environment, or see if can get access to the (virtual) console to make corrections afterwards.

It is also important to note that if you have a DHCP server in your network you can also choose to use the DHCP reservation option there (if present) to always assign the same DHCP IP address to this server. But not all DHCP servers have this option. In such a case you can still do the static IP address assignment in the Linux server operating system itself with the instructions below, but please then do not configure the static IP to one inside of the DHCP range, but outside of it. Otherwise the DHCP server may consider the IP address you have chosen for your server suitable for assignment to a DHCP client, and that can cause an IP address conflict. Some networks have no DHCP server at all, and in that case you can pick any free IP you want with the instructions below.

Open the file /etc/network/interfaces in the nano text editor:

If you see in the contents of that file a message like "ifupdown has been replaced by netplan on this system, see /etc/netplan for current configuration" then your system is apparently using netplan for configuration instead. We have another guide to cover that type of configuration and you should then instead use this guide:

Example contents of the interfaces file:

Press ctrl+x, then press y, and then press enter, to save and exit the file. You should reboot to allow the changes to take effect.

In the example above, the IP address is set to and it is in the network with an Internet gateway and DNS server at . In some situations if the DNS server needs to be changed and you have things set statically you’ll need to edit /etc/resolv.conf and update it to have the correct DNS server. Without a working DNS server you’ll be able to ping IP addresses like on the Internet, but not be able to resolve and ping addresses like www.openvpn.net. In the resolv.conf file you can fix that. Another important thing to note here is that in our situation shown above we have only one network interface and it is called ens192 . If it is called something else in your system, obviously make allowances for this and adjust things as necessary.

If you have successfully changed the IP address, and you can gain access via SSH to the server, but the Access Server web services are not responding, it is possible you had your Access Server configured to listen to a very specific IP address, and if you have changed this, then the Access Server web services won’t start. We have a guide to reset the web services and daemon ports here to resolve that issue.

Setting a static IP address in Ubuntu 16.04 vs 18.04 LTS

Static IP addresses are an important part of networking for many types of servers, although a bit more overhead to configure they ensure a consistent state. The Ubuntu configuration of static addresses varies depending on the operating system version you are running, this guide will look at the 2 most recent versions with Long Term Support (LTS)

This guide shows you how to configure a static IP address on an Ubuntu server running 16.04 LTS or 18.04 LTS that is currently configured with DHCP.

Assuming your Ubuntu server is connected to the network on DHCP, to verify this run

This should return the interface along with the IP address and subnet issued by DHCP.

To find the gateway address run

Configuring a static IP using the network interfaces configuration file (16.04 LTS)

To set a static address, edit the following file,

If you are presented with the following below, please see the section below titled "Configuring a static IP using Netplan"

# ifupdown has been replaced by netplan(5) on this system.  See # /etc/netplan for current configuration. # To re-enable ifupdown on this system, you can run: #    sudo apt install ifupdown

Change the file from the DHCP configuration which will look similar to below (Do not change the loopback settings)

# The primary network interface auto ens160 iface ens160 inet dynamic

to the static configuration as per your requirements, i.e.

Exit vi with ESC the :wq! and enter

Reboot and reconnect on new IP to ensure changes have applied correctly.

Configuring a static IP using Netplan (18.04 LTS)

Starting from Ubuntu 18.04 LTS, Ubuntu uses Netplan to configure network interfaces by default. Netplan is a YAML based configuration system, which is designed to simplify the configuration process.

Check for the netplan yaml filename using

Once you have the filename, edit this file using

This should be set similar to the DHCP config as following;

Edit the file so it looks similar to the following;

Apply the yaml configuration

Verify with ifconfig that the changes have come into effect and ensure you can ping a device outside of the local subnet
