[Koha] How to get dynamic IP for my koha server

The issue is networking configuration. If you followed Chris' recommendation 
on the Koha server machine, which I am assuming is different that your 
Mikrotik Router Board 1100 AH box, then the issue is most likely with 
configuring your Router (as I said before), not the Koha machine.

As I don't have access to such hardware and don't know anything about it, 
the best I can recommend is to read the documentation: 
It will be like searching for a needle in a haystack, but you will gain an 
understanding on your networking environment which will help you on a 
forward basis.

Dear Chris,
Thanks for your advice. We have tried this "sudo/etc/init.d/networking
start", but still the server cannot receive any IP from the Mikrotik Router
Board 1100 AH. How else can we try to resolve this issue?
