Ubuntu Installation :: Couldn't Configure DHCP

Sep 9, 2010

I am a web designer and don't know anything about servers. My server service provider use Linux environment and sometime it would be much easier for me to have a local server to test my websites. So I have install a fresh copy of Ubuntu 10.04 to one of my computer. Half way installation, the system tell me something like couldn't configure the DHCP, I have checked that my router has enabled DHCP servers (D-Link 615). After installation and logon, I use sudo pppoeconf command and try to set the network.

But it said something like no PPPoE access. I know I am very dull, and maybe get ban from this forum because I have not read the instruction, it will be great if you can point me to the right page. All I want to do is have something like a web space + MySQL and support PHP to work with.

Ubuntu Servers :: Airport Card On A Wireless Network - Couldn't Auto-configure My DHCP Network

Aug 13, 2011

I've installed the Ubuntu 10.04 Server onto a PPC G4 Mac just for the experience of setting up a server. During the installation process Ubuntu couldn't auto-configure my DHCP Network. I'm using the airport card on a wireless network. How can I manually configure the network once Ubuntu is installed.

Networking :: Configure A (openSUSE) Client To Dhcp To EBox DHCP Server - Lease An IP Address

Mar 25, 2010

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 and get a response

openSUSE11232CL1 dhclient: DHCPDISCOVER on eth0 to port 67 interval 4
openSUSE11232CL1 dhclient: DHCPOFFER from
openSUSE11232CL1 dhclient: DHCPREQUEST on eth0 to 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 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?

Ubuntu :: Couldn't Establish A Connection, Even Local Network Only Via DHCP?

May 25, 2011

For strange reasons I was stuck without an Internet connection for about 2 hours. I couldn't establish a connection, even local network only via DHCP. This was on Natty. After 30mins passed, I rebooted to Maverick only to get the same results. With nothing else to do, one hour after, I booted into Windows XP to play Dragon Wars 2. Lo and behold! I had Internet connection. At first I thought it was a technical problem with my ISP. So I rebooted hurriedly to Natty and after several minutes of trying to coax Network Manager for a damn fre*kin* connection it still couldn't.

Back again to XP, I couldn't believe that I wasn't experiencing some kind of on/off signal from my ISP. It wasn't just a coincidence that I could connect on XP and not on Natty. The connection was fine! And I've reason to believe for the past 2 hours, my ISP wasn't the culprit. .. this time it was on my end.Now - on Natty - I manually configured the connection (Instead of DHCP) to be greeted with the familiar Connection Established prompt from notify-OSD.

Networking :: Configure To Use A Specific DHCP Server?

Jan 24, 2010

This is probably an odd request, but figured I'd ask in case someone knew. We have a lab that has the IP range ( The lab gateway/DHCP assigns an IP in the range of I want to set up my own DHCP server on a specific range, for example I create a new host fine, but since it's set for DHCP, it uses the DHCP server at 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 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 DHCP server instead of the server?

OpenSUSE Network :: How In World Do I Configure SSH With DHCP Assigned Address

Aug 7, 2011

I am just trying to get SSH working between 2 local machines on OpensSuse 11.4 boxes. I have the SSHD daemon running, the firewall is configured to allow SSH to pass, and I am using SSH's password authentication. However, my machines cannot see each other. Anytime I try to SSH, I get "Could not resolve hostname<hostname>: Name or service not known."

Of course, that leads me to believe I need an entry in my /etc/hosts file. However, I use DHCP, and therefore have a dynamic IP address. Therefore, my hosts names will only be good until the next IP renewal. How in the world do I configure SSH with a DHCP assigned address?

Ubuntu Servers :: Ubuntu Server Edition Was Unable To Configure DHCP During Install?

Apr 12, 2010

I am trying to install Ubuntu server edition on an old HP XT963 that recently came into my possession. I mainly just wanted to use it as a home file server and print server. I have been running ubuntu desktop on my laptop for a little under a year, but this is my first go at the server edition.

While ubuntu was installing it said "network autoconfiguration failed," I hit continue, thinking I could figure out how to configure it later. After lots of googling I still haven't figured out what exactly is wrong.

auto lo
iface lo inet loopack
after googling around I made it look like:


I would like to provide more information such as ifconfig and any other commands but I'm not exactly sure how I would do that without being able to copy/paste. I guess I would have the command dump the output to a file, but I'm not familiar with the -options this being my first time CLI-only.

Networking :: Configure PC For Wired/static And Wired/DHCP Networks ?

Oct 27, 2010

I want my netbook to connect automatically to both the office wired/static network and to the usual wired/DHCP networks.

wicd is wicked but netsearching hasn't revealed how to configure it for both wired/static and wired/DHCP except by manually switching profiles.

wicd's profiles can use pre/post(dis)connect scripts but I don't know how to integrate them into wicd when they are upping/downing connections on cable (un)plugging.

If it is not practical to solve this within wicd, I'll explore standalone scripts to configure eth0 on cable (un)plugging, as detected by ifplugd.
