Re: dial-up to ethernet
Thanks again to everybody for their answers.
My /etc/network/interfaces file is:
# /etc/network/interfaces -- configuration file for
# The loopback interface
iface lo inet loopback
# The first network card - this entry was created
during the Debian installation
# (network, broadcast and gateway are optional)
iface eth0 inet static
# gateway 192.168.1.2
There is no following line like,
# iface eth0 inet dhcp
for me to uncomment, but I don't see any reason
why I couldn't just write one, yes?
If I put that line in and comment out the others,
as suggested, does the kernel rewrite the file
with the info it acquires during bootup; is that the
way it works?
BTW, ifup and ifdown seem to work.
Thanks again to all,
P.S: I don't know why gateway is commented
out above, I just noticed it. I didn't do it.
