OpenBSD 3.1 dhclient.conf connect problem to ROGERS network in Ottawa, Canada

OpenBSD 3.1 dhclient.conf connect problem to ROGERS network in Ottawa, Canada

Post by Roy Assal » Thu, 23 May 2002 02:45:53



Hello,

I just read a post from Feb. 6, 2002
(http://archives.neohapsis.com/archives/openbsd/2002-02/0186.html) but one
the people's email address is no longer valid.  So I might be asking the
same question.

I have just installed OpenBSD 3.1 to build a router.  I live in Ottawa, and
I used to have Bell HSE and so it was easier with PPPoE.  Now it should be
even *more* easier, but I'm not able to get the IP from Roger's DCHP server.
I even tried hard coding the IP address, gateway, DNS, routing table...still
with no luck.  I also believe that Roger's version of DHCP server is sort of
a quick hack and that they're not following the constraints of the protocol.
Then again I could be wrong.

I did a "#windump -vv -x -s 1500 -e udp port 67" on my windows box to see
what RENEW in winipcfg.exe did and got the following:

20:15:18.176056 0.0.0.0.68 > 255.255.255.255.67:  xid:0x6404a874

Now when I did a "#tcpdump -vv -x -s 1500 -e udp port 67" on my OpenBSD box,
I would get only the DHCP:DISCOVER with the following (please not this isn't
an exact cut-and-paste job):
CID:01:00:80:c6:fe:b3:de HN:"Micron PR:SM+DN+DG+NS

This did not get me an IP address because it appears I missed out on the
requested items "PR: WNS+WNT+WSC+RD+SR+VO+CLASS" and I'm also missing the
"VC: VC:77.83.70.84.32.57.56" field as well as the "RQ: 24.192.17.82" field,
which is my previously request IP address.

Does anybody know I can add those fields into my dhclient.conf file by sort
of reverse engineering what the Windows Box is sending on DHCP:DISCOVER?

Does anybody have a workaround for this?  Will using the WIDE implementation
of DHCP client remedy this?

Thanks in advance,

Roy Assaly

OpenBSD 3.1 dhclient.conf connect problem to ROGERS network in Ottawa, Canada

Post by s.. » Thu, 23 May 2002 04:01:23


Roy,

Ensure that you have your account # properly specified in the
dhclient.conf file:

interface "xl0" {
        send dhcp-client-identifier "cRxxxxxxx-a" ;

Quote:}

you can get this from your box, or your invoice, or by calling Rogers
(yeah, as if they ever answer their phone).

Hope this helps ...
Cheers,
R.

OpenBSD 3.1 dhclient.conf connect problem to ROGERS network in Ottawa, Canada

I've never had to change anything in my dhclient.conf (OBSD 2.8 and 3.0)
to get my service to work (Roger's in Waterloo, Ontario).  The DHCP on
the other end responds reasonably to the dhclient requests for an IP
address.  Unless my MAC changes, I rarely get a different IP address.

Perhaps the Ottawa service is different.

The thing is, I don't have a "cr-xxxxxxx-a" identifier.  I know what you
mean, all my friends have that, but for me, I was never given anything like
this on any invoice.  I guess rogers' has started doing away with the
cr-xxxxx-a.
I believe they're using the MAC address or something to give out the IP
address.
I have also tried *many* different configurations in dhclient.conf: (Micron
is my
windows box, myrouter is my OpenBSD box)

interface "rl0" {
         send dhcp-client-identifier "Micron" ;

Quote:}

AND
interface "rl0" {
         send dhcp-client-identifier "myrouter" ;
Quote:}

AND
  send dhcp-client-identifier 01:00:80:c6:fe:b3:de;
AND
  send dhcp-client-identifier 01:00:e0:29:88:a9:fc;
AND
  send host-name "Micron";
AND many more...

i know it sounds strange but try it.
I just tried it using 2 different ways.  By releasing the IP address before
shutting windows, and by NOT releasing the IP address.  Both resulted in the
same result.

Problem solved:  Bad NIC, or so it seems after I changed it.

Thanks for all the info everyone!!

1. HELP: Connecting to internet via Rogers@Home (Ottawa)

Hi guys ... Here's my situation:

I recently had a linux box (Mandrake 7.1) up and running connected to the
internet.  This process took me quite some time (4 days) but mysteriously, I
was up and running.  I then set up a DNS server and a web host to host a
couple of domains I registered for friends.  Not but 3 days after I was
done, the system seems to have died!  The first thing that happened is that
the monitor went into standby mode, and I was not able to recover .. Even
after a reboot!  But ... even more bizarre ... the monitor (and video card)
work now!

Once the monitor started working again, I decided to boot up the machine to
start hosting again ... but it wouldnt connect to the internet!

I decided to re-install Mandrake 7.1 to try to start from scratch (just in
case) ...  but once again, I cant connect to the internet.  I cant seem to
get it to work by fluke again ..

Can anyone help me?

Here's some background info:

Hardware:

    Abit BM6 Mobo.
    Celeron 400 Cpu
    64 MB RAM
    8gb HDD (Fujistu)
    ATI Xpert98
    Acer LAN 201 PCI N.I.C #1
    Surecom EP53? PCI N.I.C #2 (to cable modem)

Network:

    Home lan, 7 nodes ...  192.168.0.1 <- Win 2000 prof. ICS server

    WAN:   Tarayon cable modem ... 2 IP addresses, confirmed working

Thanks for your time!
