I have been using ubuntu for quite sometime now. But just recently started getting interested on the networking side of it (Mainly for work reasons). Just recently I ran into an embedded linux system which uses /etc/config/network in order to configure the interfaces on the system. As far as I know in order to do that you should use the /etc/network/interfaces file instead. Could anyone tell me what is the difference between this two files (if there is any?). Just as an example, the content of the files is:
option proto 'static' option ipaddr '127.0.0.1' config interface 'loopback' option netmask '255.0.0.0' config interface 'eth0' option proto 'dhcp'
