Hi.
I recently installed proxmox on my dell r710 server, installation went fine and i see the login page on the server. But i cant reach it on the ip address.
I have googled alot last days, but i need help, also new to linux.

I have tried "ip a" - "nano /etc/network/interfaces" and tried different ethernet ports back on the server, when i plugged it out it said "eno1: NIC copper link is down"

Help is much appreciated !! :)

why don't you try assigning an IP address from the same subnet (192.168.68.0/24) ? and with the gateway IP the same on your PC?

Im new to this. Do i need to reinstall proxmox or can i change the config and reboot? What ip address should I assign? just a random between 192.168.68.0 and 192.168.68.100 ??

you need to edit:
- /etc/network/interfaces
- /etc/hosts

in /etc/hosts: replace the old IP with new one

in /etc/network/interfaces:
replace address with a free & valid address from your subnet, e.g.: 192.168.68.50
replace gateway with: 192.168.68.1

then reboot
