I have ATTBI for an isp, someone told me that the IP TTL is expiring on the way to the server. Their network design supports no more than 16 hops on the way to a DHCP server, but increasing the (hard-coded) TTL (at line 159 in /usr/src/contrib/isc-dhcp/common/packet.c) can help fix the problem. I would like to manually try to connect to my isp before i try changing the code for DHCP. I got my network info from my lrp operating system. I would like to switch that to bsd. can i use traceroute to find out the number of hops i am currently taking to get to my isp's dhcp server?
Don't see why not, assuming: 1) The DHCP server returns icmp echo requests 2) You know the IP of the DHCP server
manual configuration -------------------- ifconfig_rl0="inet 188.8.131.52 netmask 255.255.248.0" #184.108.40.206/21 ifconfig_rl1="inet 192.168.1.254 netmask 255.255.255.0"
This should be: defaultrouter="220.127.116.11"
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ This is wrong. Don't put that in.
domain the-matrix.net nameserver 18.104.22.168 nameserver 22.214.171.124
This goes in your /etc/resolv.conf
is there anything else i need to manually connect to my isp?
As long as they allow the use of that IP, no. You should be good to go.
