Bug#835499: netcfg: Does not allow for pointopoint addresses, not even in export mode
netcfg does not ask for a pointopoint address when entering the
network config manually, not even in expert mode
In expert mode it will show you, after collecting all the information,
that is has NOT set a pointopoint address.
Please change this setup since this always means that you have to
select "No network configuration" and manually write your
/etc/network/interface file after the installation of the base system.
netcfg should in normal and expert mode always ask for the pointopoint
adress and let the users know that it is OK to leave the field emtpy
when there is no pointopoint address needed.
Many large hosters use setups where you have to set a pointopoint
address and not supporting it makes a Debian installation
