Sorry for not being clear. I did mean to use dhcp. The network server
is working fine that the previouse FC5 had no problem to run the IF by
dhcp. Not sure why doesn't work in Debian. Anyway, I manually created
an IP address for for the time being, it is connected to the network
now, but I still want the debian box connect to the network by dhcp.

If I want to another linux box connect to the Debian box using ssh,
should I install and start sshd in the debian box? I see the ssh has
already in the debian box, but I guess it is the ssh client, not sshd.
If I need to enable sshd in the debian box, how can I do it?

Thank you.

Kind Regards,
