Re: traditional static ip with nm

One issue with static addresses I still have is when u set a static address it loses its address on loss of carrier.  It would be nice if static interfaces could hold their address and maybe lose assigned routes on carrier loss.

On a bright note, I was using ubuntu 8.04 today and I would like to say nm has improved very much since then.  I personally fall guilty of complaining a lot on this list without any graditude!  Thanks nm looking better!

See more details about "system settings" here:

Basically, you can use the ifupdown plugin to translate the settings
from /etc/network/interfaces into configuration that NM uses.  That
should already be set up for you if you are getting your NM through your
distro.  Otherwise, you can
use /etc/NetworkManager/nm-system-settings.conf to specify the ifupdown
plugin.  ifupdown has only limited support for configuration though, and
the 'keyfile' plugin provides support for all connection types NM

NM natively supports static IP addresses; so you can either configure
them via /etc/network/interfaces as you normally would, or you can use
nm-connection-editor along with the 'keyfile' plugin to set up a
system-wide configuration for your  machines without touching /e/n/i.
