G'Day !

I have been using Debian for a long time now, so feel free to ask any 
questions.

Networking is set-up in the latest release (Stable), via files in the 
/etc/network directory.  In there you have 3 files. 
/etc/network/interfaces is the one your are intersested in for normal 
networking.  The other 2 files are for firewalls and /or security.

It is all well documented in the man pages.

cheers,
Jim Parker

Sailboat racing is not a matter of life and death ....  It is far more 
important than that !!!

        Subject:        Debian vs RedHat config question.

Hello,

I've been using RedHat 6.2 of the past year to build clusters and tinker 
with.  Recently I've taken the plunge into Debian (Potato-2.2r3) world and 
I 
find that some of the configuration is good bit different.  In particular, 

I'm looking for an analogy in Debian.  In RedHat 6.2 (it may be different 
in 
7.x), there is a file "/etc/sysconfig/static-routes" that helps bring up 
the 
network routing very cleanly.  This file has worked quite well for me in 
RedHat's boot and network initialization scripts.  However, I cannot find 
a 
similar solution in Debian.  Can anyone help?  If I find I cannot live 
without the file I may need to port the RH6.2 config scripts to mesh with 
my 
Debian system.

Thanks,
