dhcp stopped working
Date: Wed, 22 Oct 2003 22:52:34 +0100
I have a Linux machine connected to a cable modem and the ISP uses
dynamic IP numbers. I originally set it up with the 2.4 stable Debian
distribution and everything was fine.
When I changed to the testing distribution dhcp stopped working and I've
tried loads of things but can't it it to set the network up on booting.
If I load the currently leased IP address as a static one and then fire
up dhclient manually it communicates with the DHCP server.
The dhcp.conf file is out of the box and has pretty much nothing in it.
iface eth0 inet dhcp
so when I try and bring up the interface with ifup then chclient starts
and I get 'network is down' messages.
