    Question Enable DHCP


    Ok,

    I decided to switch to another linux distro for my web server (DeniX) and during the installation it enabled a static ip by default. There was no option to enable dhcp and i would like to enable dhcp for now till i get so i can enable some stuff remotely and be be able to turn static back on. Does anyone know how to do this and then reneable static afterward.

    Which distro is it? DeniX?

    Anyway 2 files should interest you (on most distros):
    /etc/resolv.conf
    /etc/network/interfaces
