I'm going to config my network interfaces and run this command: auto eth0 but it returns -bash: auto: command not found. It seems I've missed something which I don't know. Any idea? What should I install?


auto eth0 is interfaces(5) syntax. It's a line you would add to /etc/network/interfaces, not a command to be run in a shell. Once you correctly configure the interface in /etc/network/interfaces, you can run the ifup/ifdown commands to apply them.
