Basic Network Configuation

And I stress basic. This is the bare minimum required for the Brix to see a DHCP and DNS server to get a dynamic IP address and resolve URLs.

I have no idea how to edit Linux files directly so I used OpenSUSE text based, system configuration tool, yast.

1. ssh to the BRIX

2. You need root privilages to run yast so either become root or use sudo.

sudo yast

Yast is navigated using your tab and arrow keys.

3. Select “Network Settings” in “System"

4. Configure your hostnames and identify your DNS servers

5. Finally set your default gateway

6. Quit yast.

If everything has worked you should now be able to resolve URLs. This can be tested by:

net lookup google.com

Which should return an ip address such as:

216.58.194.206
