Networking, and hence sshd, does not start until after login on Ubuntu

I updated my Ubuntu system and restarted it, as prompted, and left the office.

When I got home I could not ssh into my work machine.

This was because I had not logged into the machine and so networking and hence sshd had not started.

To get networking started before login add the following to /etc/network/interfaces

auto eth0
iface eth0 inet dhcp
