Below are a collection of example netplan configurations for common scenarios. If you see a scenario missing or have one to contribute, please file a bug against this documentation with the example using the links at the bottom of this page. Thank you!

Configuration

To configure netplan, save configuration files under /etc/netplan/ with a .yamlextension (e.g. /etc/netplan/config.yaml), then run sudo netplan apply. This command parses and applies the configuration to the system. Configuration written to disk under /etc/netplan/ will persist between reboots.

Using DHCP and static addressing

To let the interface named ‘enp3s0’ get an address via DHCP, create a YAML file with the following:

network:
  version: 2
  renderer: networkd
  ethernets:
    enp3s0:
      dhcp4: true

To instead set a static IP address, use the addresses key, which takes a list of (IPv4 or IPv6), addresses along with the subnet prefix length (e.g. /24). Gateway and DNS information can be provided as well:

network:
  version: 2
  renderer: networkd
  ethernets:
    enp3s0:
      addresses:
        - 10.10.10.2/24
      gateway4: 10.10.10.1
      nameservers:
          search: [mydomain, otherdomain]
          addresses: [10.10.10.1, 1.1.1.1]
