Because the mouse sharing software needs to use the network connection, the IP of the desktop computer always changes, causing the laptop to reconfigure the IP every time it restarts. So I set the fixed IP for Ubuntu. The method is very simple, and it can be configured directly in the system settings.
1. View the default network configuration
Open system setting and network
The wired network I am connected to:
Start the terminal and “ifconfig” to view the following mask:
Record your configuration here, and use it later:
2. Add fixed IP manually
Open “setting” in the network. The interface may be different:
Click “IPv4”, and the address option is set to “manual” mode. Other configurations are as follows:
- Set a static IP. In order to prevent computer conflicts with other students, I set the address of 210, that is, 192.168.0.210. It is recommended that you also set a 200 + address
- Other netmask, gateway and DNS are the same as before
After configuration, click “apply” in the lower right corner and restart the computer!
