Fingerterminal shows wrong ipaddress [released]

asked 2014-05-14 09:07:16 +0200

Fingerterminal shows wrong ipaddress after wlan change. I usually check my ipaddess with /sbin/ifconfig to know where to login. Suprisingly I can login like seen but ifconfig shows a old ipaddess.

First of all, Fingerterm has nothing to do with this, it just happens to be the default terminal software installed.

Second, ifconfig is deprecated at least in some distros. Try ip addr and see if it reports the same thing.

instead of /sbin/ifconfig you can try ip addr command, although I am sure it will display the same info.

You could check, whether that was just a hostname for you ssh-client ie. what is the real IP-address, with which you took connection. Or is it the USB-address of Jolla?

Hostname is Jolla as seen in the prompt and on the first line ssh command. ip addr gives

Can you check Settings - Developer Mode and post both ip addresses? Because Wlan + Usb IP are not necessarily the same.
