So i can change the IP address of eth0 using
ifconfig eth0 192.168.1.55
and the network interface changes BUT i have to unplug and then reinsert the network lead to get it to be recognised on the network.
Is there a command i need to issue after the ifconfig to get the network to ‘restart’ so i do not need to unplug and then reinsert the lead ?
I found the way to do this without unplugging the lead is
ifconfig eth0 down
ifconfig eth0 up
Our BSP images are shipped with connman for managing network interfaces.
Can you please try using that to configure your IP address? Refer to this article for instructions.
Please be aware that this also depends on other network properties.
Here in my local network, as soon as I change the IP, even with the cable plugged in, the properties are applied at the same time.
