I have a small embedded system which runs on linux.
When I start the system everything is normal. I am able to ping outside world properly
then i ran this command
- "ifconfig esw 192.168.0.187 netmask 255.255.255.0"
Now the problem is, that I cannot ping outside
this is what my linux shows
"PING northamerica.sipphone.com (184.108.40.206): 56 data bytes
ping: sendto: Network is unreachable"
My questions are
1. why is the above happening (i did not touch any resolv.conf files, i just did the simple ifconfig command)
2. After doing the "ifconfig" command is there something to be done with DNS (to setup or change configuration or something)
thanks a ton
