    debian ifconfig does not show eth0. eth0 not showing

    Sorry if obscenely crass but know nothing at all about networking.

    Few questions:
    debian:/home/lugo# ifconfig eth0 broadcast netmask
    eth0: Setting Rx mode to 1 addresses.

    Is this an error or is it allright.

    debian:/home/lugo# ifconfig
    lo Link encap:Local Loopback
    inet addr: Mask:
    RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
    TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0

    Thanks any help.

    No mention of eth0, should there be? There is if I do ifconfig eth0 up.

    look at what i posted here:

    after putting your values in the config files, i believe you should use "ifup eth0"

    I needed an eth0 'stanza' (sic) in the /etc/network/interfaces file - am using Debian.
