Re: Static IP


Yes, NM should work with static IP.  It checks the current ifcfg-eth0 
files when it starts up and grabs the info from there.  Now that I 
recollect, it may or may not work with DNS though, depending on where that 
information is stored for each profile.

My only problem is that now and then I have to use a wired p2p connection with static IPs and wonder how the status is for this. CVS logs indicate that the functionality should be there but the README says otherwise...
