Re: dh-client setup problems

I put the below in my /etc/network/interfaces and presto!

This seems to be running pump.  What is dhclient.conf?

cat /etc/network/interfaces
# /etc/network/interfaces -- configuration file for ifup(8), ifdown(8)

# The loopback interface
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

auto eth0
iface eth0 inet dhcp

I'm quite frustrated at this point in time trying doing something that should be so simple I'm sure I've been hit with the stupid stick.

most cable providers authenticate based on either the MAC address of
the NIC or by setting up the host name. in the commented
/etc/dhclient.conf file there is some entries for both. uncomment the
apropriate ones and try again.
