How to Configure Static IP Address on Fedora
A static IP address is an Internet Protocol (IP) address that remains the same even when your computer is connected to Wi-Fi. You may need a static IP address for several reasons, such as if you have multiple devices on your home network and you want to make sure they can use their respective IP addresses to communicate. If you’re using your computer as a server, it may also be necessary so that other devices can find it at all times. Configuring a static IP address on Fedora is easy and you will learn how in this article.
We will discuss 2 methods for configuring static IP addresses on Fedora using GUI and terminal.
Method 1: Configuring Static IPv4 Address on Fedora with GUI
The Fedora Desktop editions provide a graphical user interface for managing the system configuration. You can quickly configure the network interfaces using GUI. Follow the below steps to configure a static IP address on Fedora Desktop systems.
- Log in to the Fedora desktop system with a privileged account.

- You will see the Details tab, here you can find the current system IP details
- Go to the IPv4 section
Set a new IP address:
- In the IPv4 Method select “ Manual ” option.
- In the Addresses section, set the new IP address, Netmask, and the Gateway.
- In the DNS section, set the IP address of your DNS server. In the below screenshot, I have used 188.8.131.52 (Google public DNS server) and 192.168.1.2 (local DNS server)
- Click the Apply button at top-right corner
Disable and Enable Networking:
Now, disable the networking and enable it again to apply the changes immediately.

This will show you a list of all the connections that are currently configured on your system.
In my case, my Fedora system is connected to modem and got the IP from DHCP server. Now to make the IP address static and persistent, run following nmcli commands.
Following commands will modify the existing connection name ‘ Wired Connection 1 ’
Run beneath command to add static ip address along with the gateway ip.
To add DNS IP address, run
To make above changes into the effect, disable and enable the connection,
Verify the ip address using ip command ,
Output of above commands would like below,
In case, you don’t want to use the existing connection and want to create new connection for configuring the static IP address, run following commands one after the another,

- Gateway IP: 192.168.1.1
- DNS IP: 192.168.1.1
Note: Replace the IP details as per your environment.
Click on Apply .
Now disable and enable the interface to make above changes into the effect.
Close the window and open the terminal and run ip command to verify the ip address.

In this article we will discuss How to Set Manual or static IP Address on Fedora,
There will come a moment in your career as a Linux system administrator when you will be tasked with the responsibility of configuring networking on your machine. On desktop computers, you are able to utilise dynamic IP addresses; but, in order to set up a server architecture, you will need to configure a static IP address (at least in most cases).
The following information on Internet Protocol version 4 (IPv4) will be used so that we may accomplish the objectives of this tutorial.
To configure static IP address, open the /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0
Note : The filename ifcfg-eth may varies from CentOS to Redhat linux. In CentOS it is available named as ifcfg-eth0, whereas it will be available only as eth0. Also, the file name will be depend on your device name available on your Linux machines such as ens0 or so on.
DEVICE="eth0" HWADDR="00:08:a2:0a:ba:b8" BOOTPROTO=dhcp ONBOOT=yes UUID="41171a6f-bce1-44de-8a6e-cf5e782f8bd6" IPV6INIT=yes TYPE=Ethernet NAME="eth0"
Now make changes like shown below, please do not forget to make changes according to your need
DEVICE=eth0 HWADDR=00:16:3e:65:de:88 BOOTPROTO= static ONBOOT=yes NM_CONTROLLED=no IPADDR= 192.168.1.10 NETMASK= 255.255.255.0 GATEWAY= 192.168.1.1 DNS1= 18.104.22.168 DNS2= 4.4.44
Please note that, You only need to change the following points.
The rest of the entries should be left unchanged.
Next edit resolve.conf to change or update the DNS nameserver
nameserver 22.214.171.124 nameserver 126.96.36.199
Once you have made your changes restart the networking manager service with:
or you can just down and up the network interface using the below command
Now to check the configured ip on your machine, run the below command

How to configure a static IP address on Fedora
E ach system administrator should be aware of the importance of providing a static IP to a Fedora workstation. You can connect and remotely control your PC from a set IP address from any corner of the world. This is just the tip of what most people do.
Without further ado, let’s guide you through configuring a static IP address on Fedora 31 Workstation using the two most common methods, GUI and command-line way.
Configuring Fedora 31 to have a static IP address
Before starting the tutorial, ensure that your Fedora 31 is completely updated using the following two commands or use Fedora Software Update.
Method 1: Setting static IP address on Fedora 31 using GUI
Step 1. From the top left of your Fedora 31 desktop, open the Activities tab.
Open The Activities Tab
Step 2. In the search bar, search for the settings application and open it.
Search and Open Settings Application
Step 3. From the left panel of the Settings app, select the Network tab.
Open Network Tab
Step 4. Now on the right side, open the system network interface setting.
Open Settings For the System Network Interface
Step 5. It should be something like shown in the screenshot below. Notice the current IP address.
Settings Of System Network Interface
Step 6. In the top panel, select the IPv4 tab.
Open IPv4 Tab
Step 7. Now let’s select the Manual option.
Select The Manual Option
Step 8. In the Addresses field, write down your static IP with the Netmask alongside the gateway. But be careful not to choose an already used IP because that will cause a network IP conflict.
Assign IP Address
Step 9. In case if you need to set the DNS.
Step 10. When done, click the Apply button in the top right of your window to save all your changes.
Press, The Apply Button, To Save Your Configuration
Step 11. You should restart your network connection to apply changes. So let’s turn off the system network interface.
Turn Off The Wired Setting
Step 12. Turn it ON again.
Turn On The Wired Settings
Step 13. Let’s check if the static IP was configured or not. Open the system network settings.
Open The System Network Settings
Step 14. You should see the new static IP configured successfully alongside the DNS.
IP and DNS Configured Successfully
Method 2: Applying a static IP address on Fedora 31 by command-line
In this method, we will be using the “nmcli” command to configure static IP on Fedora 31.
Step 1. First, we need to get the name of the current network connection and its unique ID.
Obtain The Name Of Your Network Interface
As you can see in the above screenshot, the network name is marked with the red line, and the unique network ID is marked with the blue line.

Step 2. Get the current IP of your network using the following command.
name_of_your_network –> Network name obtained in the previous step.
Get The Current IP Address
Step 3. Now let’s change the current IP to a static one. Use the command:
network_uuid –> Network unique ID obtained in the first step.
static_IP –> Your static IP, but be careful not to choose an already assigned IP because that may cause a network conflict.
Set IP Address Manually
Step 4. Set the network gateway using the following command.
network_gateway_IP –> Your Network Gateway.
Set Gateway Manually
Step 5. Set network DNS.
Set DNS Manually
Step 6. Set the network configuration method to be manual.
Change Configuration Method To Manual
Step 7. Next, we need to restart the network to apply all the changes. So first, we will turn the network off using the next command.
Turn Off Your Network
Step 8. Now let’s turn the network on again.
Turn On Your Network
Step 9. Let’s check if the previous changes were applied or not. Use the following command to get the current network IP.
name_of_your_network –> Network name obtained in the first step.
IP Configured Successfully
As you noticed, all the changes have been applied successfully. That’s all about configuring your Fedora system to have a static IP address. I hope you enjoyed this tutorial.

Thanks for your article. But is there a config file where we can setup the network config like in debian “/etc/network/interfaces” ?
Hi. This was very helpful. Step 4 didn’t seem right. Your entry should show the brd value “192.168.1.255” less 1 as gateway address. I tried the bed value shown in my terminal but it didn’t work. Dropping one digit, worked for me. so the resultant command as per your example images should be sudo nmcli connection modify network_uuid IPv4.gateway 192.168.1.254
one suggestion. combine the down and up commands into a single line. THis is necessary of you are trying to do this over ssh.
sudo nmcli connection down network_uuid; sudo nmcli connection up network_uuid

How to Set the Static IP Address Using CLI in Fedora/CentOS Linux
How to set the static IP address for CentOS 7/Fedora 22+ is introduced in this post. Here, we assume the Linux is using NetworkManager to manage the network . All steps are done as root.
Find the interface you want to set the address
Table of Contents
lists all interfaces.
Find the interface name to set, such as enp2s0 .
Edit the interface’s configuration file
For interface NAME , the configuration file is stored in /etc/sysconfig/ network -scripts/ifcfg-NAME . For the above example of enp2s0 , the configuration file is /etc/sysconfig/ network -scripts/ifcfg-enp2s0 .
As an example, to set its IP to 188.8.131.52 with netmask 255.255.255.0, gateway 184.108.40.206, DNS 220.127.116.11, the content will be like
For more details of the configuration and other options, you may check the the Interface Configuration Options from this QA .
Restart network/NetworkManager services
You will need to restart the network/Networkmanager services to make the new configuration take effect
Then you can use ifconfig -a again to verify whether the IP is set successfully.

How to set static ip in Fedora
Below is the method to give your machine a static Ip for the fedora.[Next post will contain the method to provide Static ip to Raspberry Pi running raspbian]
1. First stop and disable the gnome network manager from running on boot.
#systemctl stop NetworkManager.service #systemctl disable NetworkManager.service
2. Now start and enable the network service to run on boot.
#systemctl restart network.service #systemctl enable network.service
Set the Static Address 1. Check which interface(s) you want to set as static.
# ifconfig em1: flags=4163 mtu 1500 inet 192.168.1.148 netmask 255.255.255.0 broadcast 192.168.1.255 inet6 fe80::dad3:85ff:feae:dd4c prefixlen 64 scopeid 0×20 ether d8:d3:85:ae:dd:4c txqueuelen 1000 (Ethernet) RX packets 929 bytes 90374 (88.2 KiB) RX errors 0 dropped 0 overruns 0 frame 0 TX packets 1010 bytes 130252 (127.1 KiB) TX errors 0 dropped 0 overruns 0 carrier 0 collisions 0 device interrupt 19
lo: flags=73mtu 16436 inet 127.0.0.1 netmask 255.0.0.0 inet6 ::1 prefixlen 128 scopeid 0×10 loop txqueuelen 0 (Local Loopback) RX packets 32 bytes 3210 (3.1 KiB) RX errors 0 dropped 0 overruns 0 frame 0 TX packets 32 bytes 3210 (3.1 KiB) TX errors 0 dropped 0 overruns 0 carrier 0 collisions 0
2. Next edit the config file for the required interface.
3. Edit the config file to look similar to the following.
Change the BOOTPROTO from “dhcp” to “static”. Also adding IPADDR, NETMASK, BROADCAST and NETWORK variables and make sure ONBOOT is set to yes.
UUID=”e88f1292-1f87-4576-97aa-bb8b2be34bd3″ NM_CONTROLLED=”yes” HWADDR=”D8:D3:85:AE:DD:4C” BOOTPROTO=”static” DEVICE=”em1″ ONBOOT=”yes” IPADDR=192.168.1.2 NETMASK=255.255.255.0 BROADCAST=192.168.1.255 NETWORK=192.168.1.0 GATEWAY=192.168.1.1
Exit the editor by pressing ‘:wq’ and enter.
4. Restart the network service to apply the settings.
systemctl restart network.service

To configure static IP address in RHEL / CentOS / Fedora , you will need to edit:
Where in the above "ifcfg-eth0" answers to your network interface eth0 . If your interface is named “ eth1" then the file that you will need to edit is "ifcfg-eth1" .
Let’s start with the first file:
Open that file and set:
Note : Make sure to open the file corresponding to your network interface. You can find your network interface name with ifconfig -a command .
In that file make the following changes:
You will only need to edit the settings for:
- DNS1 and DNS2
Other settings should have already been predefined.
Next edit resolve.conf file by opening it with a text editor such as nano or vi :
Once you have made your changes restart the networking with:

To setup static IP address in Debian / Ubuntu , open the following file:
You may see a line looking like this:
Change it so it looks like this:
Save the file and then edit /etc/resolv.conf like this:
Restart the networking on your system with:

The time will come when you will need to configure networking on your system. Unlike desktop machines where you can use dynamic IP addresses, on a server infrastructure, you will need to set up a static IP address (at least in most cases).
Terrible – and my ‘ linux distro ‘ isn’t the same as yours, there’s no ‘ /etc/sysconfig/ ‘ folder.
In Ubuntu 20.04 there is no interfaces file they switch to netplan . If you can update this article to include the new change it will help a lot.
Well, this isn’t correct. Just trashed my Linux mint distro
Is it public Static IP? or can I use to access data from other networks?
Failed to restart network.service: Unit network.service not found.
I’m asking a question on a fairly old thread, but just in case, is it possible to do this on a WIFI network?
For example, when using the first command (# nano /etc/network/interfaces ) in Ubuntu, the result I see is:
There isn’t an “ eth0 ” on my server because it is connected by WIFI only. Will it still work using another option?
Yes it will work I think so, just change the settings in the interfaces file as explained in this article.
I set the static IP in ifcfg-eth0, added HWADDR and UUID, but on reboot system does not associate the IP to eth0.
This is VM. Any idea why its happening and steps to troubleshoot.
I think you need to make sure that you select “ manual ” and the correct IP address, subnet mask, and gateway and save the configuration as explained in the article. Also, I personally would select a new and different IP address, so that you can really check if it has been saved by opening the terminal and typing:
after a restart.
If i set ip address as static am not able to ping google.com why and also packages are not installed.
Please give me reply as soon as possible.
Please add the DNS Name servers in your /etc/resolv.conf file..
@Ravi Saive thanks for your reply , yes i did /etc.resolv.conf also but getting the same problem
The file is /etc/resolv.conf , in this file add your DNS name servers for example.
When I enter the /etc/resolv.conf file, what is it supposed to look like? And when you say “edit” do you mean delete what’s there and write what you’ve provided, or just add new lines?
Hello Marin, Thank you very much for this article. It was a major help in my class project. This is my first time using a vm and it is an awesome learning experience. I’m really glad I ran into this article, it was well written and easy to follow.
Just wanted to say a million thank you’s for this well-written, comprehensive and easily-understood article! Awesome stuff! A real lifesaver too, as I had to quickly configure a static IP for myself to get access to remote computing. Thank you! :-D
A question from a linux newbie. Does this instruction apply for both ubuntu running on my desktop PC as well as debian linux on an embedded board?
Yes, the instructions will works on any Debian/Ubuntu based distribution without any issues..have you tried on your embedded board? does these instructions worked? let us know.
Hi Ravi, thanks for your reply.
Default the folder /etc/sysconfig does not exist on my embedded system. Of Course i could create it as well as the files mentioned, but it would be out of the context of this instructions.
I found here very good stuff! You are doing an excellent job and I like your site! Thanks!
Thanks for finding this site very useful and thanks for appreciating our work, Keep visiting for more such useful articles…
Great job, I was I actually looking for an article like this one. So thank you so very much. Keep up the good work.
Thanks for appreciating and finding this article useful, keep connected to Tecmint for such wonderful articles…:)
What if I have 2 NICs on my server one for LAN & one for WAN and I want to set one of them (WAN) as default gateway? How to configure this server as gateway and as a router.
The easiest way to add default gateway using route command as shown:
Don’t forget to replace the gateway IP address and interface-name in the above command.
One can also use following command to setup static IP on eth0 interface for example. # ifconfig eth0 192.168.1.1 netmask 255.255.255.0 up # route add default gw 192.168.0.1 # service network restart
Thanks for the tip, but I think setting IP address directly from the commandline using ifconfig and route will only allow you to set temporarily, once you reboot, these settings disappears. So, the best option to set static IP address permanently in network configuration files only….
wipe on reboot, so that best option is to set permannetly
Hello Ravi, What is difference between the service “NetworkManager” and “network”
This article will help you to understand the difference between and NetworkManager and Network: http://askubuntu.com/questions/1786/what-is-the-difference-between-network-manager-and-ifconfig-ifup-etc
Why do we need to specify DNS in both ifcfg-eth0 and resolvlf.conf?
Actually if you have added the DNS servers in the ifcfig-eth0 file the DNS servers will be automatically added to /etc/resolv.conf. You can skip defining the DNS servers in the ifcfig-eth0 file, but then you will need to have them set in /etc/resolv.conf manually. It’s a good practice to make sure that the DNS servers are specified correctly in both files, this is why the article says to set them in both files.
