What happens when, as root, you type "dhcpcd"?

Can't get connected with DHCP

Post by Philippe Lema » Wed, 09 Feb 2000 04:00:00


Hello,

here is a nagging problem for which I've searched a solution for days,
without any success. So here is my request (I'm on LinuxPPC Q3 R5, on a
Macintosh G4; it screams ;-):

I'm trying to configure my Internet access, through a modem-cable that
uses the DHCP protocol. It seems to partly work, because I receive an IP
address. When I type netstat -r, my Ethernet interface is "UP BROADCAST
RUNNING", as so is the lo interface "UP LOOPBACK RUNNING".

But I can't get connected to the web, or telnet. When I check in
/var/log/messages, I get:

Feb  7 21:37:37 localhost inet: inetd startup succeeded
Feb  7 21:37:37 localhost named[330]: starting.  named 8.2 Mon Apr 19
06:22:48 EDT 1999

Feb  7 21:37:37 localhost named[330]: cache zone "" (IN) loaded (serial
0)
Feb  7 21:37:37 localhost named[330]: Zone "0.0.127.in-addr.arpa" (file
named.local): No default TTL set using SOA minimum instead
Feb  7 21:37:37 localhost named[330]: master zone "0.0.127.in-addr.arpa"
(IN) loaded (serial 1997022700)
Feb  7 21:37:37 localhost named[330]: listening on [127.0.0.1].53 (lo)
Feb  7 21:37:37 localhost named[330]: listening on
[MY.IP.ADDRESS.HERE].53 (eth0)
Feb  7 21:37:37 localhost named[330]: Forwarding source address is
[0.0.0.0].1024
Feb  7 21:37:37 localhost named: named startup succeeded
Feb  7 21:37:37 localhost named[331]: Ready to answer queries.
Feb  7 21:37:37 localhost named[331]: sysquery:
sendto([192.5.5.241].53): Network is unreachable

So I get my IP address, but why is the network unreachable? Why does it
search for 0.0.127.in-addr.arpa?

Your help would be grateful.
