dh-client is requiret to fetch a dhcp address for you, it should be running.
below is my /e/n/interfaces file
# This file describes the network interfaces available on your system
# and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5).

# The loopback network interface
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

# The primary network interface
auto eth0
iface eth0 inet dhcp
If you want to use dhcp make sure that it looks exactly like this.

Woo, slow down. Stop and think a minute. Debian is one of the easiest
and trouble free distributions to run, if a package is installed all
the required scripts are installed as well.
Have you tried running:
#/etc/init.d/ssh start
What did it return, was that script there to begin with? Did you check
to see if openssh-server is installed as Andrei suggested? The client
and server are in different packages. You may have the client
installed but not the server.
If you type in
starbuck:~# apt-get install openssh-server

You should get a response like below if the server is installed:

Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree... Done
openssh-server is already the newest version.
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.

Attack one problem at a time and create a new thread in debian-user
for each new problem. Give us time to help you before trying things
that will make the end result harder to achieve or introduce new


24x7x365 != 24x7x52 Stupid or bad maths?
<erno> hm. I've lost a machine.. literally _lost_. it responds to
ping, it works completely, I just can't figure out where in my
apartment it is.
