I am using Ubuntu 10.10 on my laptop, which connects to our network wirelessly. Since it sits on my desk next to my desktop, I have a private network between the two using a firewire cable, because
synergy and file copies are much more plesant over firewire than wifi.
I want to set a static IP for the
firewire device on boot so I don't have to keep using
ifconfig each time. However the device doesn't appear in Gnome's NetworkManager. How can I set a static IP for the firewire device? Terminal commands are fine, as long as NetworkManager won't blow the config away.
