/etc/network/options


hi

I've done the Upgrade from Etch to Lenny and I'm getting at the startup this message:
Code:
/etc/network/options still exists and it will be IGNORED!
Code:
# cat /etc/network/options
ip_forward=no
spoofprotect=yes
syncookies=no
it seems to be an old sarge file.
should I remove it?

I'd say yes but why not change its name to /etc/network/options_obsolete and wait a week. If disaster doesn't strike, delete it then. If bad things happen you can always name it back to "options". My feeling is that you do need it. FWIW, I don't have that file.
Cheers,
jdk
