Ubuntu Linux Static IP Configuration

Posted on in Categories , , last updated July 5, 2016

I have an Intel Corporation 80003ES2 LAN Gigabit Ethernet Controller. How do I set a static IP address settings for my Ubuntu Linux server as follows:
DEVICE name : eth0
Type: static
IP ADDRESS : 10.10.29.66
NETMASK : 255.255.255.192
ROUTER IP: 10.10.29.65
Broadcast: 10.10.29.127

How do I setup a static IP address under a Ubuntu Linux 14.04 or 16.04 LTS server?

I would like to configure my Debian box to backup two remote servers using rsnapshot software. It should make incremental snapshots of local and remote filesystems for any number of machines on 2nd hard disk located at /disk1 ( /dev/sdb2). How do I install and use rsnapshot on a Ubuntu or Debian Linux server?
