I have followed the latest guide about changing the /etc/dhcpcd.conf file, and successfully set a static ip address, but then I can't reach the pi through ssh or a browser (it's a server). Any body else experience this?
As you know, networking configuration in Raspbian Jessie has moved to /etc/dhcpcd.conf .
Try the following steps to troubleshoot the issue:
- Restart networking:
sudo ifdown eth0 && sudo ifup eth0
- Check if your interface is configured:
Does eth0 have the address you specified?
- Did you format the address in /etc/dhcpcd.conf with CIDR subnet mask notation, and does the subnet mask match your local area network (/24 is equivalent to 255.255.255.0):
