    Default Network Setup HowTo

    Well I download the VMWare and I have Static IP.
    I lost 30min to figure out how to setup all parameters via cmd line,
    is there a NetworkManagement GUI app in BackTrack, I saw only for WLAN.
    And the eth0 was down. anyways these are the commands I used:

    Setup IP/MASK/Gateway:
    # ifconfig eth0 <IP> mask <mask>
    Route Net:
    # route add -net netmask eth0
    Set Gateway:
    # route add default gw
    Set DNS:
    # vim /etc/resolv.conf

    Could also try one of the GUI based:
    netconf , linuxconf, netconfig
