[solved] dhcpcd message: packet "is not ours" ???


When I run --

Quote:
/etc/init.d/net.eth0 restart
-- to start my networking, I get a message from dhcpcd saying :

Quote:
Ignoring packet with xid 1599999 as it's not ours (1243123434)
What does this mean?

Thanks,
jrtayloriv

xid is an identifier chosen by the client to ensure that the request coming back is indeed the answer to it's request, not someone elses...

there's a good summary of the xid attribute here... http://www.freesoft.org/CIE/RFC/2131/20.htm

Thanks acid_kewpie -- I've always wondered how they checked for that on insecure networks...
