Why Scourge (2nd computer) isn't getting ip address from Misery (1st computer) dhcp?


<none informational part of thread>
Hello, i'm new member. Using this Slackware like distrubion called Tukaani (tukaani.org)
<the informational part>
My problem is, that Scourge (the second computer) isn't getting any ip-address from dhcp server (the first computer, Misery).

I reinstalled my distrubion couple days ago, becouse i wanted to repartition my windows XP and Tukaani partitions.

I burned my configuration files to cd, to prevent this kind of problems. It seems that something did go wrong.


In misery's /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1.conf file:

# Config information for eth0:
IPADDR[0]=""
NETMASK[0]=""
USE_DHCP[0]="1"
DHCP_HOSTNAME[0]=""

# Config information for eth1:
IPADDR[1]="10.0.0.1"
NETMASK[1]="255.255.255.0"
USE_DHCP[1]="0"
DHCP_HOSTNAME[1]="0"


Worked out fine, before reinstallation of Scourge

In Scourges /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1.conf file:

Config information for eth0:
IPADDR[0]=""
NETMASK[0]=""
USE_DHCP[0]="1"
DHCP_HOSTNAME[0]=""

# Config information for eth1:
IPADDR[1]=""
NETMASK[1]=""
USE_DHCP[1]=""
DHCP_HOSTNAME[1]=""


This also, worked fine before installation.

Heres couple of lines from /etc/var/debug (which is debug output of /sbin/dhcpd -d eth0)

Apr 5 10:55:07 scourge kernel: eth0: no IPv6 routers present


networkcard driver is in module:

root@scourge:~# lsmod | grep forcedeth
forcedeth 18176 0

So it's loaded.


root@scourge:~# dmesg | grep eth0
eth0: forcedeth.c: subsystem: 010de:5b25 bound to 0000:00:04.0
eth0: no IPv6 routers present
eth0: no IPv6 routers present
eth0: no IPv6 routers present
eth0: no IPv6 routers present


Any ideas?

Looks like you might need to figure out how to disable IPV6.

Just a stab in the dark.

No, I had to enable ipv6 support from the kernel and shoot hole to my firewall.
Got it.
