Dns /dhcp


I'm rather new to linux,started last fall, i have a debian 4.0 server who is DNS and DHCP server, another pc is running SUSE 10.1 / VISTA RC1, there is a problem getting the DHCP and DNS settings to the SUSE machine, DHCP works sometimes and the DNS never works, the firewall in SUSE is set to accept DHCP/DNS,

1) Do you have any other computers behind the Debian box? IE do you have another machine that can help to determine if the Debian box is actually providing DNS and DHCP to the network?

2) From the command line of the Debain box, please post the output of these commands -
Code:
ps aux|grep dhcp
dig google.com @localhost
The first command checks for both dhcp and dhcpd processes it is running. The second asks the Debain box for the IP info for the google.com website.

3) If you get positive results from those commands, then try to restart networking on the Suse box.

It is also possible it is just a cable problem that effects the Suse box's connection.

Peace,
JimBass

Question

I have A Vista PC that gets IP and DNS from the Debian PC, i've restarted the Network on the SUSE PC and it doesn´t help. DHCP has sometimes worked on the SUSE pc, but never DNS.

Ok, so the answer to my first question is yes, and you didn't do anything about 2 and 3. Please post those output commands I asked for. Since dhcp seems to be running, you probably have a bad cable between the Suse box and the sever, or you did some form of upgrade that installed a new kernel that screwed up your network card.

Peace,
JimBass
