I am fairly new in UNIX and have recently installed backtrack on a VMWare box on my machine and I am trying to use DHCLIENT command but am having trouble in understanding the interfaces.
I am connected to the internet through wireless internet on my Mac but when I try and list all internet devices through backtrack, a WLAN doesn't show up,
# ip link show 1: lo: <LOOPBACK,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 16436 qdisc noqueue state UNKNOWN link/loopback 00:00:00:00:00:00 brd 00:00:00:00:00:00 2: eth0: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 1500 qdisc pfifo_fast state UP qlen 1000 link/ether 08:00:27:cd:c9:cf brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:f
I am curious to know why a WLAN isn't showing but an ethernet connection is? Is this because Backtrack think its connected through WLAN through my Mac's wireless? Secondly, what's the first device 'lo'?
