router box - unable to configure DHCP server- [fixed]
i have an old compaq desktop that was running smoothwall with no troubles. i would have left the sleeping dog lie had i not needed (well wanted, since i'm a nice guy) to make the computer semi-usable for a roommate, and play with samba and printer sharing
i installed gentoo without any troubles, and all aspects of the box are running fine, except the dhcp server. i cannot get that router to hand out ip's. when i assign an ip to my desktop, and tell it to use the comaq as a gateway, everything is peachy, but i can't tweak the other roommates laptop since it's a corp lap and doing so would cause more hard than good when she goes in the next day.
i've tried using udhcp, dhcpd, and dnsmasq to no avail. it seems like i'm the only doofus who can't configure things properly. i'm wondering if there's a port that i'm overlooking? maybe some kernel setting? bear in mind that i am able to use it as a gateway, and i think i have iptables set up appropriately through shorewall.
anyone else have any idears?
