Default Specifying a static I.P. address for a Fedora 8 box - having issues

Hi List;

I've installed Fedora 8 on 2 of my home servers. I want to specify an I.P.
address so I did this.

Running KDE, went to K-Menu --> Administration --> Network

entered the root passwd

In the Network Config tool I clicked on edit and I see that the "Automatically
obtain IP address via dhcp" is checked.

If I run an ifconfig I get this:
$ /sbin/ifconfig
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:E0:4C7:71:44
inet addr:192.168.1.4 Bcast:192.168.1.255 Mask:255.255.255.0
inet6 addr: fe80::2e0:4cff:fed7:7144/64 Scope:Link
UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1
RX packets:1250431 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
TX packets:726057 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000
RX bytes:1762907258 (1.6 GiB) TX bytes:49097625 (46.8 MiB)
Interrupt:18 Base address:0xa000

I have a firewall which has the IP 192.168.1.1 and it's setup as my dhcp
server. If I log into the firewall and see the LAN settings I see this:

Name:
Device Name: ixp1
Status: Connected
Network: LAN
Connection Type: Ethernet
MAC Address: 00:c0:49:f4:32:b6
IP Address: 192.168.1.1
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
IP Address Distribution: DHCP Server
Received Packets: 4873480
Sent Packets: 6792793


So, I did the following:

1) clicked the Statically set IP address button and entered the following:
-- Address: 192.168.1.71
-- Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
-- Default Gateway: 192.168.1.1


2) Exit the network config tool and save my changes

3) restart the network:
/etc/init.d/network restart

Now if I run ifup, then look at the output of ifconfig I see this:
# ifconfig
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:E0:4C7:71:44
inet addr:192.168.1.71 Bcast:192.168.1.255 Mask:255.255.255.0
inet6 addr: fe80::2e0:4cff:fed7:7144/64 Scope:Link
UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1
RX packets:1562719 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
TX packets:916632 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000
RX bytes:2178981981 (2.0 GiB) TX bytes:62483658 (59.5 MiB)
Interrupt:18 Base address:0xa000

At this point I can ssh/scp to/from the server via 192.168.1.71 however I
cannot get anywhere on the web. If I try and ping google I get this:

# ping www.google.com
ping: unknown host www.google.com

Now if I change the settings back to automatically get an IP via dhcp, and
restart the network then I can ping www.google.com and get a reply.


What am I doing wrong here?

Thanks in advance.

Nothing is wrong. But the DHCP automatically setup the DNS entry
automatically. If you setup a static IP, you will have to add the DNS
entry as well.


ping 64.233.169.99

will work without the DNS entry.
