Static IP on Linux

If you want your router to assign a static IP on a specific Linux Machice you just have to edit /etc/network/interfaces to look like below.

# This file describes the network interfaces available on your system
# and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5).

# The loopback network interface
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

# The primary network interface
allow-hotplug eth0
iface eth0 inet static
        address 192.168.1.120   # The static IP
        netmask 255.255.255.0
        broadcast 191.168.1.255
        gateway 192.168.1.1
