Ubuntu Networking :: Set Dhclient To Autorun At Boot?

Jan 21, 2010

Had a problem getting my internet connection working with Ubuntu, but I resolved that issue. Problem is I still have to manually run dhclient every time Ubuntu boots, because I have no network unless I do. Is there a script or something that can do this automatically?

Ubuntu Servers :: Dhclient On Boot After Wpa_supplicant?

Feb 13, 2011

I apologize if there's a solution to this somewhere on the forum, but I searched around on google for several hours before posting this, so I assure you, I'm not trying to waste your time.Here's the deal. I have a file/print server running wpa_supplicant on interface wlan0 via ndiswrapper. Its wireless because the location I need the printer in is really inconvenient to have to run wires to, or I wouldn't have this problem.The box is running ubuntu server 10.10, with only ndiswrapper and the associated utils and wpa_supplicant installed in addition to the default packages required for file/print/web serving. (there may be a few trivial packages like Vim that should have no effect whatsoever.)Basically, wpa_supplicant associates fine with the AP, but I can't get any elegant way of getting a IP address with it, DHCP or static makes no difference. My current fix is my rc.local file has:

sleep 60
dhclient wlan0

Ubuntu Networking :: Automate A Dhclient Call At Startup?

Nov 28, 2010

For test purposes I'm running Ubuntu 10.10 from a USB stick with a USB WLAN stick.The system finds the WLAN router and acquires an IP6 address, but no IP4 address.With "dhclient wlan0" though it does get an IP4 address and connects o.k.How do I setup the system so that this dhclient call is done by the system at startup (or whenever it is necessary)?

Fedora Networking :: Dhclient Cannot Find Interfaces

Sep 29, 2010

I am running Fedora 13 and after my machine is booted my ethernet interface eth0 does not have an IP address. Running


At the terminal does not work, and I can see that in /var/log/messages I have the following error:


I assume that the same command was attempted during the boot process (please correct me if I am wrong) to use DHCP to get an address for eth0, but failed for the same reason it is failing after boot when I run it manually, whatever that reason may be.

I noted, however, that eth0 IS in broadcast mode:


I also noted that running


Does in fact work and will run DHCP and configure eth0 with an ip address.

It is quite mysterious to me why running 'dhclient eth0' will work, but manually running 'dhclient' does not.

Fedora Networking :: Dhclient-script Gives Router Address ?

Jul 7, 2011

I have just installled fedora, and I am puzzled by dhclient-script. Because it gives the router ip as nameserver I have had other linux distro on same machine that resolves the correct nameserver without any configuring.

Does anyone know how to get your ISP:s nameservers instead in /etc/resolv.conf when running dhclient from CLI? I have thought about edit /sbin/dhclient-script. But if that is the case. Which option should I edit?


My system

Networking :: Dhclient Running On Disconnected Ethernet Port?

Nov 8, 2010

I have a simple server running Ubuntu Server. Usually the server connects to the network by Wifi, so there is usually no cable connected to the Ethernet port. I noticed that there is a dhclient3 running on eth0 anyway. It is causing undesirable disk activity. Obviously, it is never going to get a response as long as no cable is connected. I can kill the responsible process manually, but I wonder first what is starting the process and how I can prevent it from being started. If there is a way to get the server to boot without starting this process, I wonder whether this is the right solution. Connecting to the network by Ethernet is the failsafe when Wifi doesn't work. I guess what I would like to see would be a way for the server to detect when eth0 does not have a cable connected and not start dhclient in that case, but to activate dhclient when a cable is connected.

Networking :: Disable Dhclient From Running On Rhel Release 6?

May 26, 2011

i've configured the machine to use a static ip yet dhclient still runs and obtains an ip. what needs to be done to stop this? it has to be something i can put in a script since i have written a setup script to run on several machines. this setup script creates/modifies several files with a few key ones shown below:





and the files, hosts, resolv.conf, network and ifcfg-eth0 in the /etc/sysconfig/networking/profiles/default directory all link to their respective files as does /etc/sysconfig/networking/devices/ifcfg-eth0. thanx!

Ubuntu :: [lucid] Disabling The Autorun Feature?

Jul 2, 2010

I have an external WD hard drive on which I have created several partitions to facilitate data arrangement. Whenever I plug it in, all partitions are mounted. That is okay. I want it to automount all partitions. But the annoying thing is all partitions opening and popping up and cluttering my desktop (which I, very dearly, keep very arranged and clean...)

I hate it and want to edit the settings so the folders will not automatically open and pop up into my face..

The program bunts if it looks ahead and sees the call to vga_setmode(), where I set it for 480 x 640 resolution.
