change IP settings on PMAC
#1
Hi,

I've followed the instructions in the manual to changing the IP address of my PMAC via the GUI, however, when I change my default gateway to what it should be, it keeps going back to what it used to be and makes the PMAC inaccessible.

1) How do I properly change my default gateway IP address so that it sticks?
2) Is there any way that I can change the IP address via line command?

thanks
windell

Answering my own question. Not sure why the GUI wasn't allowing me to change the gateway address, but I found the answer here

In summary, I pretty much just edited the "interfaces" file in the PowerPmacIP folder on the flash disk with the correct IP, subnet mask, and gateway address. As the link above stresses, make sure to make a backup just in case. Putting the card back into the PMAC ( I guess alternatively you could edit the file by ssh-ing into the PMAC) and upon power up, the PMAC will take on the new settings.

thanks for your help!
