Debian Configuration :: DHCP3 Server Giving Wrong Ip Address?

May 20, 2011

Hey guys. I have a client computer PXE booting from my host computer and it is supposed to give the client the ip address however instead it gives it the ip address

I have this set up working with two other computers and there is no noticeable difference other than mac addresses for the network card.

Here is an extract from my '/etc/dhcp3/dhcpd.conf' file...

option domain-name "";
default-lease-time 600;
max-lease-time 7200;


I have quadruple checked the mac address of the client and it is definitely "00:07:E9:32:16:81" so why is it not giving it the IP address that I have specified?

Server :: DHCP3-Server Giving IP Addresses Depending On MAC

Apr 11, 2011

I have dhcp3-server (isc-dhcp-server) installed on my Debian and now I got a question about how it's giving the IP addresses to new devices.

For example: I connected my laptop and dhcp server gave me address. Will it always give me the same ip address when I connect my laptop or it will eventually change after some time (week-month)? If it's not changing it, then I am wrong about this.

BUT...If I am somehow correct and if it will change in a week and give me another random (like IP even I won't change my laptop network adapter, is it possible to configure dhcp server to always give same IP address depending on what MAC it is?

To make it clear, I want that when I connect new device (new laptop/pc) dhcp server would give it random IP but same time it would note the MAC address and never change the IP on that MAC.

I know about MAC filters, but setting filters is when you know MAC address since beginning and want to assign IP for it, but in my situation I don't know the MAC address.

Networking :: DHCP3 Server - Setting Double Range Of IP Address

Apr 27, 2010

I would like to set a double range of IP address with my DHCP3-server. Now, I have eth0 (which is my only network card) with this IP address : and I have created a second interface eth0:1 with this address: The goal is to give an IP address 172.16.93.X to phones (with option 66) and the IP address 192.168.3.X to the computers.

This is my DHCPD.conf :
ddns-update-style none;
option domain-name "";
option domain-name-servers;
default-lease-time 3600;
max-lease-time 2347200;
log-facility local7;
option ip-forwarding off;
default-lease-time 20;
max-lease-time 20; .....

Right now my DHCP server work fine, (I means, no error at the startup ) but the server give always the same kind of IP address, whatever if it's a phone or a computer. I notice something "wired", if I put the :
subnet netmask {
option routers; }
(Which is first in the dhcpd.conf) after the "subnet netmask", the server will give IP address 172.16.93.X at all the clients. Is it possible to give more than one IP range with one network card at the same time? And how set the option 66 to only give IP address (172.16.93.X) to the phones?

Debian :: Block A Router From Giving Me A Dhcp Address

Aug 18, 2011

I get assigned an IP from the university's server. Every now and then, a student will plug in his router to the network trying to get wifi in his/her room.

And by doing so will start assigning IPs on the network, while rendering useless the university dhcp server, which has to cope with a higher number of pc's.

How can I specify to dhclient (or the linux system in general) NOT TO obtain IP addresses given by a specific mac address ?

Debian Configuration :: Use Specific Address For Dhcp Server?

Apr 27, 2011

I'm running gnome desktop on squeeze system. When I boot my system seems to be using my internet modem as its dhcp server. The rest of the machines on my lan are correctly using my router for that purpose. As a result, what happens then is that my debian machine frequently gets a duplicate ip address assigned to it. I would like to specify to my debian computer that I want it to use the specific fixed ip address of my router for dhcp purposes.

Debian Configuration :: Computer Booting To Wrong Grub

Jun 25, 2015

I recently installed another Linux distro, Kali Linux, alongside my Debian 8 and discovered to my chagrin that my computer boots to Kali's grub rather than to the Debian grub. I had spent some time customizing Debian's grub and would hate to see that effort go to waste. Is there a way I can get my computer to boot to Debian's grub instead? I tried deleting Kali's boot partition with gparted but that did not seem to do anything.

Debian Configuration :: Wrong Graphic Driver After Upgrade

Oct 6, 2015

Today I fresh installed the latest stable version of debian (jessie) with gnome from the USB DVD image for a 64bit machine. Everything got fine except the graphic driver, I think.

Now Gnome 3 is running but graphic is super slow. My previous debian/gnome 3 ran much better and I think there is a problem with the graphic driver.

I'm on an thinkpad t61.

Processor: Intel Core2 Duo CPU T7500 @ 2.20GHz × 2
Ram: 4GB
Graphic: VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Mobile GM965/GL960 Integrated Graphics Controller (primary) (rev 0c)

Now the graphic is: Gallium 0.4 on llvmpipe (LLVM 3.5, 128 bits) which is likely wrong. If I'm not mistaken llvmpipe is pure slow software acceleration.

Moreover this was different on my previous debian (wheezy), which was faster. Anyway I don't know what " Gallium 0.4 on llvmpipe (LLVM 3.5, 128 bits) " is and it was for sure different in wheezy.

According to apt-get I have the latest intel graphic divers installed. So maybe this an X-org confic problem?

Debian Configuration :: Wrong Name For The Wireless Card On Reboot

Feb 17, 2016

A couple of days ago I asked why my pc changes the wireless card name.It switches between AR9285 ( right) and AR5008 ( wrong). Well, it is not the case. When system identified with AR9285,it loads ath9k and I can connect to the router. When system identifies my card as AR5008, no kernel module is present at all ( lspci -k). The wrong card name occurs only when system rebooted. If I gracefully shut down the system, it always comes up with a right name for the card( AR9285). So, how to force the system identify my card right no matter if I reboot or shut down?

Debian Configuration :: Testing/Sid - ProFTPD - File Wrong?

Feb 26, 2010

I've been working on the setup of a FTP server on my Debian system for the whole afternoon. But I can't get it straight! Normally I get it working in just a second, but it's been a while I guess.

I installed only proftpd-basic and it's default dependencies. Should be enough right?

My configuration files are as follows:

I created the user zeitgeist, gave it a password, group and a homedir. Group of the user is nogroup and the homedir is correct with the 755 permission. My port 21 for FTP is open I tested it with nmap -p 21 [ip-address].

My Filezilla client tells me that at first he is connecting, then the connection is established, And then the connection is closed by server.

Debian Configuration :: Wrong Fingerprint When Connecting With SSH After Conn-reset

Jan 6, 2011

I've got a strage problem with openssh-server on debian lenny. I've done setup of sshd and basically everything works fine. I can check the fingerprint of the ssh-keys on the server and it matches with the fingerprint shown on the client for the first connection. so the key is stored in the known-hosts-file on the client.

The problem occurs after a "connection reset by peer" (i guess when the connected client goes to sleep or a timeout occures)!

After such a reset, when I try to connect to the server, the banner "WARNING: REMOTE HOST IDENTIFICATION HAS CHANGED!" appears and the shown fingerprint of the server-key is totally wrong (it differs from the one on the server, BUT it is everytime when this problem occurs the same fingerprint). If I nevertheless remove the correct key from the known-host-file and accept the new key, I still can't login (permission denied).

To fix this situation temporarily I just need to restart the networking on the server. After the network-restart I get (again) the correct fingerprint of the server-key and can login without problems. Until the next connection reset.

Debian Configuration :: Raspbian On Raspberry Pi Always Get A Invalid IP Address

Jan 7, 2016

I got the Raspberry pi 2 Model B. I flashed my sdcard with raspberian Jessie kernel 4.1 (latest).Also tried wheezy and NOOBS, same behavior.With a ethernet cable (known working), I tried connecting my Pi to my home router, and I got a invalid ip address, and therefore no linkup. I got the same results by connecting my Pi directly to my modem (wired).

I know that /etc/dhcpd.conf is the new /etc/network/interfaces for network configurations.So I tried the debug option, and I noticed that the router doesn't seems to response to the DISCOVER command from the Pi (dhcp v4 protocol).Here's a dump of by /var/log/syslog | grep dhcp

Code: Select allDec 28 12:00:02 raspberrypi systemd[1]: Starting dhcpcd on all interfaces...
Dec 28 12:00:02 raspberrypi dhcpcd[349]: version 6.7.1 starting

ANd if i use raspbian flesh out of installation, I get this when i run

dhcpcd -k
dhcpcd eth0
eth0: probing for an IPv4ALL address
eth0: using IPv4ALL address

Seems like my home router TP-link (default setup) doesn't send a response to the dhcp request.
