HowTo Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 Configure The Network Card

by on April 10, 2007 · 96 comments· LAST UPDATED October 19, 2013

in , ,

I have installed Red Hat enterprise Linux version 5.x server. Next, I added a brand new LAN card (NIC). I can see my second network card detected while booting the IBM server. How do I configure the network card from the command line?

Red hat Enterprise Linux version 5.x and 4.x provides the following tools to make changes to network configuration such as add new card, assign/change IP address/subnet/gateway, and change DNS server and more.

Tutorial details
DifficultyIntermediate (rss)
Root privilegesYes
RequirementsX-Windows/ssh/
terminal
Estimated completion time20m
[a] GUI tool - system-config-network

[b] Command line text based GUI tool (No X Windows/Gnome/KDE required) - system-config-network

[c] Edit configuration files stored in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ directory. This method works with remote server over the ssh based session.

The following instructions are tested and compatible with:

  1. Cent OS Linux v3/4/5.x.
  2. Fedora Core Linux (older version).
  3. Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) v3/4/5.x based server.

Note: If you are using Debian or Ubuntu Linux, please see this configuration guide for more information.

Method # 1: GUI tool system-config-network

Open the X terminal or login using ssh over X based session command (ssh -X user@server-name-here). Type the following command at shell prompt:

Warning: It is important that you configure network interface cards correctly over ssh -X based session; otherwise, you will be locked out due to wrong network configuration.

$ system-config-network &
Sample outputs:

You will see a Window as above. Next, select your Ethernet card (such as eth0 or eth1) and click on the Edit button. You can now setup/modify IP address, netmask, default gateway and other properties. Here is an example from my personal RHEL 5.x server:

Fig.02: Setting or modifying IPv4 and IPv6 properties on RHEL/CentOS based server

Fig.02: Setting or modifying IPv4 and IPv6 properties on RHEL/CentOS based server

You can obtain IP address using DHCP or setup manually. Once IP address assigned, click on Ok button to save the changes. You can activate card by clicking on Activate button.

Method # 2: Command line tool system-config-network-tui

If you don't have X windows GUI (gnome/kde desktop) installed on RHEL/CentOS/Fedora based system, than type the following command at shell prompt (this method also works on remote server using ssh based session):

Warning: It is important that you configure network interface cards correctly over ssh based session; otherwise, you will be locked out due to wrong network configuration.

# system-config-network-tui &
Sample outputs:

Select your Ethernet card such as eth0 or eth1 and hit [Enter] or [F12] special key to configure IP properties for selected NIC:

Fig.04: Setting up IPv4 properties on RHEL/CentOS (click to large)

You can obtain an IP address using DHCP or setup IP address manually. Once an IP address assigned, click on the Ok button to save the changes.

Method #3: Edit configuration files stored in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ directory

You can configure network card by editing text files stored in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ directory. Open the terminal or login using ssh. Next, change directory to /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/:
# cd /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/
You need to edit / create files as follows using a text editor such as vi:

  • /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 : First Ethernet card configuration file.
  • /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth1 : Second Ethernet card configuration file.

Examples: Edit eth0 configuration file

To edit/create first NIC file, type the following command in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ directory:

Warning: It is important that you configure network interface cards correctly over ssh based session; otherwise, you will be locked out due to wrong network configuration.

# vi ifcfg-eth0
OR
# vi /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0
Edit or modify as follows for static ip configuration:

# eth0 - Intel Corporation 82573E Gigabit Ethernet Controller (Copper) on server1.cyberciti.biz by nixCraft on 10/4/2007
DEVICE=eth0
BOOTPROTO=static
DHCPCLASS=
HWADDR=00:30:48:56:A6:2E
IPADDR=10.10.29.66
NETMASK=255.255.255.192
ONBOOT=yes
 

Save and close the file.

Setting up default gateway and server (host) name

You need to define a default gateway (router IP) and hostname in /etc/sysconfig/network file. Edit /etc/sysconfig/network, enter:
# vi /etc/sysconfig/network
Append or modify configuration as follows:

NETWORKING=yes
HOSTNAME=www1.nixcraft.in
GATEWAY=10.10.29.65
 

Save and close the file. Finally, you need to restart the network service, run:
# /etc/init.d/network restart
OR
# /sbin/service network restart

Setting up dns server

Make sure you have correct DNS server defined in /etc/resolv.conf file:
# vi /etc/resolv.conf
Setup DNS server IP address as follows (feel free to replace 10.0.80.11, 10.0.80.12 as per your setup):
nameserver 10.0.80.11
nameserver 10.0.80.12
nameserver 202.67.222.222

Save and close the file. Now you can ping the gateway/other hosts using the ping command:
$ ping 10.0.80.12
Sample outputs:

PING 10.0.80.12 (10.0.80.12) 56(84) bytes of data.
64 bytes from 10.0.80.12: icmp_seq=1 ttl=251 time=0.972 ms
64 bytes from 10.0.80.12: icmp_seq=2 ttl=251 time=1.11 ms

You can also check for Internet connectivity with the ping, nslookup and/or host command:
$ nslookup cyberciti.biz
Sample outputs:

Server:         10.0.80.11
Address:        10.0.80.11#53
Non-authoritative answer:
Name:   cyberciti.biz
Address: 75.126.43.232

You can also use host dns lookup command as follows:
$ host nixcraft.in
Sample outputs:

nixcraft.in has address 75.126.43.232
nixcraft.in mail is handled by 10 mail.nixcraft.in.

How do I see or debug network configuration on RHEL/CentOS based server?

Simply use any one of the following commands:

 
###########################
## display ip config     ##
###########################
ifconfig
ifconfig -a | more
ifconfig eth0
ifconfig eth1
ip link
ip addr

I had similar problems with the RTL8168/8111 NIC card. There is no driver for this NIC in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.1. You will need to install 5.3 or later to get the driver.

Even now, I still have problems with this NIC card. e.g. when sending a large file, I see that data is transferred for maybe 10 seconds at a time, followed by maybe 20 or 30 seconds of no activity, followed by further data transfer.

In the end, I installed a different network card and configured this as eth0 and now, no problems.

Hi I’m currently running cent-os 4.8 w/ vmware so I don’t know if this applies to a native install of the os or is just a bug in vmware, but in any case running ‘system-config-network-tui &’ , backgrounding the program will crash the program (the all familiar terminal goes wacky, gotta ctl-l it) but running it without the background ‘&’ symbol, all runs fine. Just putting it out there in case it helps anyone else. Great article by the way, cheers!

64 Deepak February 10, 2011 at 6:23 pm

Hi,

May be your LAN is not working.

Procedure:

In GUI:

1. Open console->type neat->hit enter->select ethernet card->give ip->then click ok->if it is unable to configure it, then replace your LAN.

Or if it is ok, but LAN is still down:
run this command0–> ifup eth0 (eth0 is your ethernet name)

ot you can give ip in the configuration file.

Reply

65 gub June 2, 2011 at 8:19 am

First check if how many Network card Interface installed in your computer.
LINUX OS read the NIC card as eth0 represents your first device name network Interface, now if you have so many Network cards, the Linux read your device as eth1 or eth2 etc.. but need to configure later,

if you want to configure your first network interface card eth0? open your terminal or linux console, edit your system network config. type this command in your terminal vi /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0
then change your address and BOOTPRO=static

im a newbie but i understand what i am writing right now, this article is great..make it simple not the other comments here there are so many reply but people who need helps didn’t understand because of pretenders

Hi Saurav,

Give the ip in the configuration file, and then restart the network service.

Then check whether the ip assigned to it or not.

Otherwise, it means your ethernet card is not working.

68 ashwin February 21, 2011 at 10:45 am

Hi Saurav,
when you do ifconfig..what you see ?
1. To find the driver details:
At the shell, type :
a) lspci | grep Ethernet
b) dmesg | grep ‘eth0′
2. Once you know the type of card, take a look at /lib/modules/kernelver/kernel/drivers/net and see if you can identify the required driver. For example, if your eth0 device is an Intel PRO/1000 card, you would add the following line to your /etc/modprobe.conf file: alias eth0 e1000 (Again depends what type of card you have).
3. what is the output of this cmd :cat /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0

76 Redhat is terrible June 17, 2011 at 5:24 pm

Redhat’s archaic and ineffective methods of managing NICs are yet one more reason why you should never ever use Redhat for anything. God forbid you install an OS and shit just works. Redhat is where Linux gets it’s bad rep from.

Hello ! Very useful site. I have a linux rhel5 server with an application software being used by more than two persons at a time through lan. I wish to make this server as a web server also, so that other people can access my website on this server. At the same time, my users working with the application software/server through client SHOULD NOT be able to acces the internet. Please provide instructions.
