Static IP Address in Ubuntu 16.04

Hi Guys,

I am trying to assign a static IP Address to Ubuntu using the following commands:
sudo nano /etc/network/interfaces

I get the following output from below:

auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

Can someone please help me with this?


Hi Tallboy,

Welcome to our forums.

Please run the following command, so we can see your current setup:

# ip link show

And provide us the output (obscure your address if it is facing the open Internet).
