last updated in Categories , , , , , , , , , , ,

Q. IPv4 by default protect internal host using RFC 1918 private IP address. But IPv6 offers direct global address which result into exposing all internal hosts as well. How do I create default IPv6 firewall to drop all incoming (except ping6 request) connection and only allow outgoing requests from Linux workstation?

Ubuntu Linux Static IP Configuration

last updated in Categories , ,

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?
