Hi all, I have discovered some problems with examples/udhcp/simple.script. I know, it's an example, and a simplified one. Most people will still just use it because it works, so I would like to point out at least some things.
First, it does not really use ip. At least not if "command" does not exist. Fair enough, I know I have ip, so I just deleted the checks and the ifconfig lines. This makes it do nothing. As I found out the culprit is this: if command -v ip >/dev/null; then ip addr flush dev $interface else ifconfig $interface 0.0.0.0 fi The difference between both cases is: ifconfig brings up the interface, ip with this command does not. So if you are using ip this will just send DHCP request to a network interface that has link down, which will not get you anywhere.
