Startup scripts

All scripts in /etc/init.d are run on system startup. Most of these can be left alone.

When the script /etc/init.d/networking runs, it loads network settings stored in /etc/sysctl.conf
root@voyage:~# cat /etc/sysctl.conf
net.ipv6.conf.all.forwarding=1 # enables IPv6 routing
net.ipv4.ip_forward=1          # enables IPv4 routing
