Hello, veryone. I've got a rather mysterious trouble, that is possible connected to the bugs in configuration files or smth like that. I've tried to set up routing, LAN and vpn on my home computer, but every time the computer boots even the loopback is down! So, I have to do the following (the results of the commands not shown, it's obvious):
sudo ifconfig lo up
sudo dhclient
sudo route add -net netmask gw #Oh, I didn't mention - even the routing table somehow erases! I can't stand it... :mad:
sudo route add -net netmask gw
sudo route del default #For setting up default to ppp
then I use pptpconfig's graphical interface to connect to vpn server (cos I have no idea how to do that in the terminal even after throughout rtfm of various manuals - may be I'm stupid!) and then
route add default dev ppp0

- wow! It works!
So, the question is - how can order the Ubuntu do all that stuff itself at the time it boots? I had ASPLinux defore, it really sucks, but it managed to do it! I've tried all the HowTo's, but no result except installation of pptp & pptpconfig...
