I've got a new installation of 12.04 on my gateway machine for my soho lan.
I'm moving across from an older machine where I'd run debian for ages and I figured I prefer the UI with Ubuntu so here I am.
I'm in the process of setting up my two network cards, one to the DSL modem and one to the lan wireless access point, along with dnsmasq and iptables.
Now I've discovered that Ubuntu has Upstart for booting, and NetworkManager and all its functionality. I'm wondering whether to go with NetworkManager, or to remove it and stick with /etc/network/interfaces way of doing things.
Anyone got any recommendations? My initial impression is that NetworkManager is not meant for this - it's aimed squarely at workstations, not servers.
