  • Configure Static IP on Ubuntu 18.04 LTS

  • Configuring Static IP with Netplan on Ubuntu

    Below you will find the steps to configure a static IP address with Netplan on Ubuntu. The netplan config files are located at /etc/netplan and the default configuration file is /etc/netplan/01-netcfg.yaml

    Open the network config file with an editor such as nano:

    sudo nano /etc/netplan/01-netcfg.yaml

    Netplan uses Python for it's configuration syntax so it's important that all line indentation is correct.

    In the example below, we'll be using a static IP address of on the first network interface ens33 and a gateway IP of This configuration uses CloudFlare DNS in conjunction with Google DNS.

    version: 2
    renderer: networkd
    dhcp4: no
    dhcp6: no
    addresses: []
    addresses: [,]

    Once all your changes have been made, you can apply them by running:

    sudo netplan apply

    Configuring a DHCP address with Netplan

    If you'd like to configure your Ubuntu server to run on DHCP (on both ipv4 and ipv6) instead of a static IP address, see the configuration below.

    This file describes the network interfaces available on your system

    For more information, see netplan(5).

    version: 2
    renderer: networkd
    dhcp4: yes
    dhcp6: yes

    Don't forget to run the command to apply the changes after you're done
