Mmmm Doesn't seem to be !  On clients machine. where should it start 
from ?

Two machines involved here !  On my laptop yes.  I switch between 
wireless and lan via network card.  Thats fine! No problems.
But the clients machine is lan only.  Still no sign of 
"networkmanager" daemon though !

I have tried both ways.  Neither method seems to work properly.  I 
also noticed that the sound is not working either.  I went for the 
"networkmanager" because it gives an immediate indication that the 
network is down.
