RFE: Set netmask to /24 network by default
Last modified: 2007-03-26 23:54:16 EDT
Description of Problem:
It would be nice if the netmask was automatically filled out to assume a
/24 network. Though I can see reasons against doing that (ie it can be wrong
and people not knowing will leave it wrong).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Milan beta 2
Will look into.
In Phoebe this is now done in the TUI install :
- after entering IP, netmask is filled
- then also gateway and first DNS server is filled ( it seems that the
network part is copied from the interface IP, the rest is filled
with "standard" values )
But this is only in TUI install, in GUI nothing gets automatically filled.
So consider this a RFE for adding this functionality in the GUI install.
BTW, why is this marked as a "Beta Only" bug ?
I'm not planning to implement this at present for graphical install.
