I've followed/looked at several guides (like this one: https://www.ostechnix.com/how-to-con...ntu-18-04-lts/
) on how to do the above.
My problem is that no static IP is getting assigned to the built-in ethernet port. I have run
several times. I've also rebooted the PC and still no luck.
I am sure the ethernet port works as I was previously using it on Ubuntu 16.04 just before I decided to fresh install 18.04.2.
Any ideas what I could be doing wrong? I am going to use the ethernet port to connect my main PC to the Ubuntu server via a crossover cable.
If I set the ethernet port to use
and connect an ethernet cable from it to my modem/router and disable my WiFi card (by removing the netplan config), the PC can connect to the net without any issues.
This is the output of
netplan --debug apply
which also shows the contents of my YAML files. I have tried with and without dhcp4/dchp6/gateway4/renderer.
