I'm trying to determine if the order of the options matter
I'm using a script (represents an external remote interface) that is updating the /etc/network/interfaces file.
The script can set the IP Address, Default Gateway, and Netmask.
My question is does the order of the options matter i.e.
#standard options auto eth0 iface eth0 inet static address 192.168.0.71 netmask 255.255.255.0 gateway 192.168.0.1 #possible script output auto eth0 iface eth0 inet static netmask 255.255.255.0 gateway 192.168.0.1 address 192.168.0.71
Is this still an acceptable configuration?
