Configure Static IP on Arch Linux

By default most Linux distributions including Arch Linux are configured with DHCP. Dynamically assigned IP is convenient for for desktop computers but quite cumbersome for headless servers. Setting up static IP allows a user defined IP addresses that will remain the same allowing to connect remotely. Arch Linux uses it’s own network configuration tool called netctl. Before you configure netctl profile you will need to find your network interface, gatewaynetmask and DNS.
