Not connected to internet unless a user is logged in
I would like to be able to access my home machine remotely, however if I turn it on but don't log in, it is not connected to the internet. If any user logs in on the local machine the internet connection comes up and I can reach the machine over the network. I do not want someone to need to be logged in to access the machine, How can I change this behavior.
I am running Fedora 8, and have already added certain networking services to lower runlevels that I thought would bring up the connection sooner (I can't remember which ones), but I still can't reach it unless someone is logged in.
I am having trouble finding any resources through a google search, I don't know if this is just a rare problem or if I am using the wrong keywords. Thank you for any help you can provide.
EDIT: My apologies, this probably should have gone in the software section. I guess it's not really a network configuration or hardware problem.
