I only wonder what I would have to do if the server was remote ?
Most likely the configuration in /etc/network/interfaces will work on a Ubuntu server as it works on Debian Linux and on systems based on the ubuntu server DVD. I guess the problem with the desktop is that the ubuntu desktop tool gets loaded when the desktop is started and seems to dynamically configure some network settings and ignores the classic network config file /etc/network/interfaces.
