Hi all.

I found that the easiest method to start networking in bt4 is "start-network" but in most guides regarding how to start networking in bt4 I see "/etc/init.d/networking start". I think I've also seen other methods to start networking in bt4.

my nub questions are:

1. what is the difference between the 2 methods I mentioned (besides the fact the "/etc/init.d/networking start" takes longer)?

2. I know that bt4 is meant to be as silent as possible, but if the isn't available from the start then how can you pentest a network ?!

thanks in advance for helping me learn.
