I changed to "audo", it sitll does not work. But, if I start dhclient
manually, it works fine. I checked ps, there was a dhclient3 running.
Could that cause the problem? How can I config /etc/init.d to make the

The ssh client running fine. It can ssh to other linux box where the
sshd is running, but other linux box cannot ssh to it as there is no
sshd running on the Debian.
I searched Intenert find a ssh script and copied it to the
/etc/init.d. The instruction says to call "update-rc.d -f ssh defaults
20", then run "/etc/init.d/ssh start". But, I could not find
update-rc.d in my Debian box, is there alternative to make a runlevel
links manually for ssh defaults 20?
