My Ubuntu 12.10 don't start ssh automatic when I boot it.

So when I use this after I restart my system appear Booting system without full network configuration and I can't use ssh for external clients.

I want to use a openvpn. But how can I resolve this problem?

I took a read in the link you provided. They seem to forgot a space after -i in

pre-up wpa_supplicant -Bw -Dwext -ieth0 -c/etc/wpa_supplicant.conf

so it should be

pre-up wpa_supplicant -Bw -Dwext -i eth0 -c/etc/wpa_supplicant.conf.

Also, run ifconfig -a to confirm that eth0 is the wireless device, otherwise replace eth0 with the correct device.

If that still fails, check on your router to confirm that the server is connected and check if ssh is running by using sudo service ssh start

Ok, I replace eth0 for wlan0? Correct? – Vitor Mazuco Apr 5 '14 at 13:35
If that's the device, yes. Not sure why that person had eth0 as their wireless. – White Fusion Apr 5 '14 at 13:50
Nothing change When I use "sudo service ssh restart" appear "ssh: unrecognized service" – Vitor Mazuco Apr 6 '14 at 0:24
