    Angry Ubuntu (server): No network interface

    I got a VPS from yesterday, and it cannot ping any IP address, and I cannot use the apt-get and wget commands. After trying to figure out the problem for a while, I found that the network interfaces eth0 and eth1 are not configured. To make matters worse, bash cannot find the 'auto' command. I looked online and found that you mey need to edit /etc/network/interfaces or something, but there is an error saying that "Permission is denied" when I try entering '/etc/network/interfaces' into the remote console. I have full root access. It seems that the VPS provider installed something other than default Ubuntu 12.04 64-bit. For all I know, I may have Ubuntu Server installed, or some crazy, unheard-of OS. So is there a way to configure the eth0/eth1 network interface properly? If you're wondering how I can access the remote console, I think that the control panel program directly communicates with the server.

    When you try to edit the file, what command are you using? Try "sudo /etc/network/interfaces" (without the quotes), if you have not already done that. To check whether you have Ubuntu server installed, run the command "lsb_release -a" (without the quotes). It will show you the version of Ubuntu that is installed on your system.
