OpenSUSE Network :: Unable To Acquire IP Address Over DHCP With Ipheth Driver In 11.4 X86_64?
Jun 14, 2011
Although Im using SuSE since 7.2 this is my first forum post here. I just plugged in my iPhone with USB and 11.4 created an eth1 interface for the iPhone and also loads the ipheth kernel module. Anyhow I am not able to acquire an IP address using DHCP. The iPhone OS is 4.2.1 and its an iPhone 3G 8GB black
I setup the dnsmasq in debian squeeze as dhcp and dns server, for the debian host i assigned the static ip addresses, and configured the xp for dhcp. Windows XP network can't acquire DHCP address from debian squeeze with this error:
error unable to contact your dhcp server Request has timed out.
this is the tcpdump output in debian for the xp network:

I had 200 workstation with both Windows XP and SuSe Enterprise Linux. Sometime, a few clients can't get IP address from DHCP with SuSe OS. With the same computer, if I reboot and chose Windows XP, it work fine. The log message or the boot message was "No IP Address yet ...backgrounding". I tried to reconfig network device, restart services, change another port, change another line LAN, set static IP Address .... but there's no luck for me.
I've just installed opensuse 11.2 with the network installation iso. During the installation, it has got the IP via DHCP without any problem, and I has downloaded all the needed packets without problems... But when the installation finish.I have no network connection It's strange, because I have IP address, I get the IP from the DHCP server, and I can see the IP addreess if I do "ifconfig", the default route and even the DNS servers in the resolv.conf file; but I cannot ping my gateway (that is the DHCP server as well!!), I cannot ping anything in my network and either anything in internet. I see a network error at the start, but it finally gets the ip address. In the dmesg, the last message repeats over and over. The machine is a Hyper-V virtual machine, but as I said... I worked very well during the installation, I don't know what is going on. I've tried to reinstall, but it doesn't make any difference
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 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?
Version 10.04 LTS. Installed desktop version and network worked but I needed a static IP address and the install configures for a DHCP configured address. I tried changing to static address using the System->Preferences->Network Connections application but was unable to get the system to come up with the network up.
So I manually modified the /etc/network/interfaces and the /etc/resolv.conf files. I restart the system but when I do an ifconfig, I don't see a configured IP address on eth0 (only the loopback address). If I run /sbin/ifup eth0 everything then works fine and ifconfig shows the correct address bound to eth0.
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 setup an dhcp server wich allows ICS, and a samba server as a PDC. I can access the shares from windows if I type the server Ip (ej. \192.168.0.1), however if if write the address (ej. \dbaserver) I cannot access them.If I type ping dbaserver on a command prompt, it returns 127.0.0.2 not 192.168.0.1, what could be wrong. I asume because of this I cannot join the domain also.
first: PXE flawless bind to dhcp address but put next binding state to free second: when installer calls init script to reinit ethernet driver (e1000 (vmware)) binding fails 11.2 opensuse fail to reinit dhcp with log entry "no free leases" third: when manual set network install works how to preserve dhcp lease on reinit of driver?
I'm using Ubuntu 9.10, and I want DHCP to assign an IP address automatically. I can ping my router, and get a reply. I just have no idea how to do this.I'm trying to get my Ubuntu machine onto my Windows network.
I have installed Fedora 10 on my A860 Dell Vostrol Laptop with AR242X Atheros Wireless card. Wireless card worked out of the box and i could detect wireless network and connect to it. But i have a problem that, my wireless connection is not able to get IP address from the DHCP server. Please help me out what can i do to get this working. I am using WEP security and authentication is open system.
I have windows 7 beta installed on the same machine and on that wireless network works fine so i am sure that there is no problem with the wirless network. I am using DIR-300 router from D-LINK. I tried to see packet log on wireshark and there i see that there is no reply to the DHCP discover message. Actually i don't see any RX packets at all. Which is not normal as there is traffic on the network.
First, (for samba) how do I determine whether my computer "gets IP address information from a dhcp server on the network," and whether "the dhcp server provides info about WINS servers ("NetBIOS name servers") present on the network," and consequently whether a change to my smb.conf file, "so that DHCP-provided WINS settings will automatically be read from /etc/samba/dhcp.conf," and whether the dhcp3-client package must be installed?
I'm running Ubuntu 10.10 and I'm having problems trying to assign it a static IP address. No matter what I put in the Preferences->Networking area (identifying the interface as Manual)... it still will query DHCP for an address if I run the dhclient command. I'm using to using ubuntu server where I just set the IP in the interfaces config file.
Why trying to avoid ranting about my Linksys router, I'll try and keep things short. I have a Linksys router in which the default firmware was terrible and would not correctly renew its DHCP lease. After getting feed up with that I flashed dd-wrt on the router and now it works better but randomly DNS queries would stop being resolved. To rule out the chances that it is my ISPs DNS servers I switched my DNS to openDNS, same problem happens (although I have to admit openDNS is a lot better than what my ISP has).
Anyways I'm about feed up with it and about an inch away from drop kicking the thing out my window. To avoid that I figured I will give it one more change and instead of using my Linksys as my network gateway I'll move all of that to my home server, and make the Linksys just an wireless AP. Besides setting up DHCP, DNS, and iptables on the server is there anything else I will need to know and setup on the server to make this work?
Side note anyone using openSUSE for DHCP know if setting up reserved IPs for certain MAC address is possible?
i've installed opensuse 11.3 x86_64 and everything works great. after install updates and restart i cannot access internet from wireless connection. Knetworkmanager says it is connected, i have a dhcp ip, gateway, and cannot access internet.... i tried to configure from yast and cannot access internet...
Attempting to compile an application that is not located in any of the repos yet for 11.3 64 bit. I have downloaded the appropriate src and untarred it. However, when I attempt to run the ./configure command here is the error I receive. checking build system type... Invalid configuration `x86_64-unknown-linux-': machine `x86_64-unknown-linux' not recognized configure: error: /bin/sh ./config.sub x86_64-unknown-linux- failed
I have made sure that I have all kernel-headers packages installed and am unsure as how to proceed. I tried using the command "./configure --build=x86_64" and then receive an error stating that the "SYSTEM IS NOT SUPPORTED" and continued errors stating that gcc is not installed, eve though it is.
I am facing two issues with CUPS - 1. I have installed cups 1.3.9 over OpenSuse11 x86. Please check below -
cups:/usr/share/cups/banners # cups-config --version 1.3.9 cups:/usr/share/cups/banners # cat /proc/version Linux version 18.104.22.168-9-pae (geeko@buildhost) (gcc version 4.3.2 [gcc-4_3-branch revision 141291] (SUSE Linux) ) #1 SMP 2008-12-04 18:10:04 +0100
I have added few printers over there and everything is working fine. I can also able to add - delete - modify any printers from "yast2 printer" command. I can also able to browse cups web interface via http://cups:631, but when I am going to manage the printers (start - stop - delete etc), none of the buttons are working in firefox5 not even in IE also. Older version of firefox is giving error as "This address uses a network port which is normally used for purposes other than Web browsing. Firefox has canceled the request for your protection." All other buttons are working properly.
2. LINUX - LINUX Printing - OK LINUX - WINDOWS Printing - OK WINDOWS - LINUX Printing - NOT OK
While giving printing from Windows machine (Printer attached on Linux), there is no problem to coonect the printers, but unable to print.
When I attempt to connect to a wireless network, the network manager asks me for the network's password, then says 'setting network address' for 20 or so seconds, then asks me for some random Hex or ASCII key in the same type of window I put the password in (Secrets for Noel -- KDE Daemon). Since a key is already typed into the window, I press OK, which then causes the network manager to go back to 'setting network address', then the window pops up again and keeps repeating itself.
I'm running Opensuse 11.4 with KDE, and my driver is ath9k. I don't know much about linux so please don't tell me to 'recompile this' or 'change this setting' without explaining how to do it. Please help, I've been unable to connect to wireless in OpenSUSE for 2 weeks now.
I've updated a desktop from 11.1 to 11.2 with the NET CD. After completion everything worked fine, though I have some issues with the NIC. been looking on the net and the provided solutions haven't been able to resolve the matter. After reboot I don't get an IP address, I go into Yast2 and network settings displays:
I have to delete the unknown device everytime after a reboot in order to get a new IP address. After that all works as it is suppsed to. I've been looking into the /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules and deleted all that was in there,
i don't know the proper commands to list my system information. Up until recently, the internet worked fine, but suddenly stopped. I opened up YaST2 and found that the network device was set up to never turn on, and i switched it to "at boot time" but it still doesn't work.
basing on the research and trial and error which am still on the trial stage with errors here's the scenario We have 5 VLAN's with and existing Windows DHCP Server, that serves 5 Scopes for the 5 VLAN's 192.168.100.x and 192.168.200.x IP Addressess evrything works well on our Windows DHCP server, what i want to do is replace our windows dhcp server with a linux box , with one NIC , ive read about VLAN on linux 802.xx something and VLAN Tagging am already confused on what to do.. what i want to ask you guys is an assistance implementation the vLAN on linux then the dhcpd.conf
