I'm trying to use the network manager applet (gnome) to save a static IP/Netmask/Gateway and DNS IP for my wired ethernet connection (eth0). It holds and functions fine until reboot upon which it resets itself to DHCP.

I'd expect it to save this information rather than having to redo the settings each logon.

Sorry should be vmware server console 1.0.6

Ok, so after a little playing around when I had time I got it working. For some reason the default connection created during install wouldn't save changes. I remove the interface through nm-applet, made it from scratch and now it's saving the information over a reboot.

Something funky going on there. If I can provide any more info just let me know.
