steve at Ouse:~$ sudo dhclient
[sudo] password for steve:
steve at Ouse:~$ cat /etc/network/interfaces
# This file describes the network interfaces available on your system
# and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5).

# The loopback network interface
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

# The primary network interface
#NetworkManager#auto eth0
#NetworkManager#iface eth0 inet dhcp
steve at Ouse:~$
