I am puzzled with trying to configure a linux (openSUSE) client to dhcp to eBox DHCP server. I am using dhclient to lease an IP address with dhclient eth0 -s 10.45.48.108 and get a response
openSUSE11232CL1 dhclient: DHCPDISCOVER on eth0 to 10.45.48.108 port 67 interval 4 openSUSE11232CL1 dhclient: DHCPOFFER from 10.45.48.108 openSUSE11232CL1 dhclient: DHCPREQUEST on eth0 to 10.45.48.108 port 67 openSUSE11232CL1 dhclient: send_packet: Network is unreachable openSUSE11232CL1 dhclient: send_packet: please consult README file regarding broadcast address.
The server reports eBox141 dhcpd: DHCPDISCOVER from 00:0c:29:3e:57:a3 (openSUSE11232CL1.domain.net) via eth0 eBox141 dhcpd: DHCPOFFER on 10.45.200.2 to 00:0c:29:3e:57:a3 (openSUSE11232CL1.domain.net) via eth0
I interpret this as the server receives the request and the client accepting it but the lease does not last long and the connection breaks. what this could be and why the connection breaks? Or my undestanding is totally wrong on how it works and should work? And BTW, where is that README file that's referenced in the message I receive on the client?
I have an embedded device for which I've created an html configuration page. This page allows you to set static IPs, dhcp, and can scan for wireless devices.My problem is that in order to access the device it requires that it runs as a dhcp server otherwise people are not assigned an IP and so can not access the embedded devices static IP. (This config page is for the laymen and so they are not the type who are able to set up their own static IPs). One of the potential options is to have the device connect to the network on eth0 acting as a dhcp client. However this prevents me from running a dhcp server.One solution I can think of is running a dhcp server only if it doesn't detect another dhcp server running on the network.
I have configured server ubuntu 11.04. Everything works fine, but there is a need for some clients to connect local hard drive. What should I do? How and what modules are added to the ltsp-image? How to register in the fstab on the client? Maybe I'm going the wrong way?
I have an embedded device which acts as a client, and a server at office. The IP address of the client is allocated by DHCP, so its IP address is actually variable. I would like to know what is the simpliest way to maintain the communication between client and server when DHCP is enabled. I once used socket many years ago to communicate between the client and the server. If I remember it right, I actually bypassed the dynamic IP issues by using the computer name to replace the IP address. Even the client is not at the same local network as the server, the scheme still worked. Correct me if my memory cheated me. if socket is still the best solution for this kind of application involving DHCP? I also heard from someone that it is necessary to implement multicast discovery protocols named BONJOUR, but I don't think it is necessary
I have installed RHEL 5.1 in VMWare 6 I want to configure one RHEL Server with DNS & DHCP Also I would like to PXE boot, whenever I create a new VMWare Client(RHEL), the installation should be initiated via network boot
I have installed a working DNS server on my home network. I have an unique server, devoted to dns, gateway, storage which runs opensuse 11.0 (I known that it is rather old). Two new clients require DHCP. I have installed, using yast, a very simple DHCP server, according to the following config:
(I have tried to add "ddns-update-style none", and to remove the ntp-servers option, since my server is not a time server, without success). Unfortunately, even if the client (a mac running OSX 10.4) receives a right IP and gateway address, it displays neither dns server address nor default domain name. The same mac, on my office network (not managed by me), receives everything.
i'd like to configure a dhcp server on my RHEL 5.3 or Fedora 14, since i don' have a legitimate DNS server....n it asks for option domain-name " "what do i put in there.. me got two nics for my WAN(dhcp enabled) n LAN...i just want to parctice at home for my future job...
This is probably an odd request, but figured I'd ask in case someone knew. We have a lab that has the IP range 18.104.22.168/16 (255.255.0.0). The lab gateway/DHCP assigns an IP in the range of 22.214.171.124-126.96.36.199. I want to set up my own DHCP server on a specific range, for example 188.8.131.52-184.108.40.206. I create a new host fine, but since it's set for DHCP, it uses the DHCP server at 220.127.116.11. Is there a way to force it to use a different DHCP server on the client side? I realize that I can work around this with exclusions on the 18.104.22.168 DHCP server, or use iptables to deny DHCP requests to specific MACs, but wanted to know if there was an (easier?) way to configure the client to use the 22.214.171.124 DHCP server instead of the 126.96.36.199 server?

Setup a DNS/DHCP/Directory server on Debian? I would like to configure the things in Debian so that can join Linux and Windows(if possible as m not sure yet) clients to the directory server. Any links to setup both Forward and Reverse lookup zone in the environment.
I've tried to configure DRBL server to use Clonezilla and that is required me to setup DHCP, TFTP servers.But I've gotten a lot of errors from them - so please look at my attachments from /var/log/messages and dhcpd.conf - help me to find out what are wrong with them.
I need to install/configure a server (dns, dhcp, etc) and since im running Debian I want to configure a Debian server, but i want to do it on a virtual machine, cause i dont want to have all that stuff on my system, now Im wondering whats the best screen recorder that i can use on Debian for this purpose.
I need to place an Ubuntu machine on a network where I have a DHCP server which does not configure the Degault Gateway parameter (we don't want ordinary users to browse the internet). Is it possible to leave the machine using DHCP and define the Default Gateway manually (as in Windows XP i.e.)? How?
