No Network Connectivity


Hello, okay so im running slackware 10.0 on a box with 2 NICs one not connected to anything and the other, im running on a Red Hat 7.3 box right beside it, exact same configuration just in a different network drop, and mine works just fine, and as far as I can tell everything looks the same, the "resolv.conf" files are both exactly the same, the only difference is the slackware box cant get an ip address from the DHCP server and I cant figure out why. This is what I get from the ifconfig.


eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:07:E9:5F:1D:AD
UP BROADCAST MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1
RX packets: 0 errors: 0 dropped: 0 overruns: 0 frame: 0
TX packets: 0 errors: 0 dropped: 0 overruns: 0 carrier: 0
collisions: 0 txqueuelen: 1000
RX bytes: 0 (0.0 b) TX bytes:0 (0.0 b)
Interrupt: 10 Base address:0x5000


eth1 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:10:5A:CB:F4:A7
UP BROADCAST MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1
RX packets: 1724 errors: 0 dropped: 0 overruns: 0 frame: 0
TX packets: 0 errors: 0 dropped: 0 overruns: 0 carrier: 0
collisions: 0 txqueuelen: 1000
RX bytes: 148811 (145.3 b) TX bytes:0 (0.0 b)
Interrupt: 3 Base address:0xcc00


lo Link Encap:Local Loopback
inet addr:127.0.0.1 mask 255.0.0.0
UP LOOPBACK RUNNING MTU: 16436 Metrick 1
RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier: 0
collisions: 0 txqueuelen:0
RX bytes:0 (0.0 b) TX bytes:0 (0.0 b)

in resolv.conf it is definetly has the DNS name correct, and it also has entries for the DNS ip address.

Could this be a problem in the /etc/hosts file? because in there all I have is my loopback.

Thanks.

the dns servers in /etc/resolv.conf are usually set automatically via dhcp...

are you sure you have the dhcp client installed on the slackware box??

what error do you get if you run the client with something like:

Code:
dhcpcd eth0
are you sure the dhcp server isn't using mac-address filtering??
