#Ubuntu interface renaming anyone? On multiple occasions I've had #VPS #networking issues. For some reason my loopback interface is called "rename1". Support assures me this is normal/default config, but it just doesn't make sense to me. Why not "lo" for loopback, and why did it get renamed in the first place? Soon I'm just going to get rid and start fresh with trusty #Debian.
@firstname.lastname@example.org are you saying your vps provider renamed it?
I think so. Can't think why else it wouldn't be standard "lo".
@email@example.com Odd move. Time for another VPS.
