On my laptop I'm experiencing a problem with dhclient. When I bootstrap the laptop (FreeBSD 5.2.1) after the server (FreeBSD 4.10), dhclient fails to get a lease within a useful time, while, if I bootstrap the server after the laptop, it gets immediately the lease.
When the client is stuck in the first scenario I kill dhclient and restart and this would fix the problem: killall dhclient dhclient ep0 The ep0 interface is a PCMCIA, 3Com Etherlink III 3C589. The only suspicious thing is a couple of messages on /var/log/messages of the laptop: Aug 18 12:01:39 hyde dhclient: send_packet: No route to host Aug 18 12:01:44 hyde dhclient: send_packet: No route to host The /etc/dhclient.conf on the laptop is: timeout 60; retry 30; select-timeout 5; initial-interval 2; omapi port 7911; The relevant rc.conf settings on the laptop look like: pccard_enable=YES removable_interfaces="ep0" ifconfig_ep0=DHCP The rc.conf settings for dhcpd on the server are (mostly defaults): dhcpd_enable=YES dhcpd_flags="-q -early_chroot" dhcpd_conf="/usr/local/etc/dhcpd.conf" dhcpd_ifaces="" dhcpd_umask="022" dhcpd_chuser_enable="YES" dhcpd_withuser="dhcpd" dhcpd_withgroup="dhcpd" dhcpd_chroot_enable=NO dhcpd_rootdir="/var/db/dhcpd" Any help is greatly appreciated. -- walter pelissero http://www.pelissero.de _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
