Re: Static ip configuration

Will it be a good thing to have a way to invoke the distribution-specific tool (system-config-network, YaST, whatever) to configure the network adapters from nm-applet? I have used netapplet before and that allows it. Also, nm-applet allows "Configure VPN", so why not allow "Configure Network Settings" also from nm-applet?

Thanks and Regards,

NetworkManager actually does support static IP addresses.  You configure
them the normal way your distribution does.  ie, in Fedora, you use
system-config-network which puts the config
in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-ethX.  NetworkManager loads this
information when it starts and uses the static IP, gateway, netmask, etc
for that interface from then on.
