DHCP router not assigning address to linux box

DHCP router not assigning address to linux box

Post by dksel.. » Mon, 10 Jul 2000 04:00:00



I just installed Linksys' Cable/DSL router to my system. The router is
also a DHCP server. So is my Internet service provider. My iMac, Win98
box, and Linux box, worked fine induvidually with the cablemodem (a DHCP
setup). When I connected the router I did not have to change anything on
the iMac or Win98 box and they worked fine. The Linux box (which is dual
boot) worked fine with no changes when running Win98, but will not work
when running linux. The router does't see the linux box and the linux
box can't ping the router. Linksys says it works with any machine
running TCP. What could be the problem?

My guess is the DHCP client (usually "pump" on RH distros) needs to be
upraded....   and you can test this.   Assign a static IP/mask in the
range used by the router, and see if you can ping it.   If so:
upgrade.  If not: repost.

Yes, I can ping the router if I assign a static address with in the
range used by the router to the linux box. I'll look for a newer version
of pump.

Thanks - Dennis

1. ISC DHCP not assigning WINS address correctly

Hello,

I'm having trouble with the ISC DHCP daemon (V3.0b1p16) on a Linux box
(Slcakware 7.0, with kernel 2.2.13).

The daemon hands out IP addresses, the DNS addresses, and the router
address just fine.  However it appears to be handing out incorrect
WINS addresses.

Any help would be much appreciated!

See below for the dhcpd.conf file, and the ipconfig output.

Thanks,

Red/.
