Elastix problem


Hallo Guys,
I have some troubles installing the ELASTIX server version 4
after having installed the software, i wanted to obtain an IP address form the DHCP server, whereas it shows the error : '' no broadcast in interfaces '' in reality, the interface cannot broadcast in the network so as to get an IP.
Can anybody helps me please ??

Hi & welcome... I'm a "Newbie" here also. Sorry nobody gave a shot at your question.
(saying that it is an *elastix* problem [instead of a Linux problem] may have dissuaded them)

You may have already solved your problem, but here's a couple thoughts...
I googled your quoted error plus the word solved and this domainname & found:
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...and-4175577340
I also tried the quoted error plus the word "elastix" [quoted!] & found:
http://bugs.elastix.org/view.php?id=2376
so maybe elastix gets confused if the device isn't eth0 ... just a 'random wild guess'.

Do you still have this problem? Can your system ping sites? Maybe post the output of:
ifconfig -a ; netstat -rn
and more details. best wishes!

the problem is not that i cannot see the interfaces, itz that the interfaces cannot broadcast to obtain an address.

Is your situation like:
http://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/...p_probe.8.html
where your program needs root priv?

I'm not understanding your whole scenario
(maybe that's why others didn't answer)

AH! Now, that is totally 'help-able' (because it's try-able [maybe reproduce-able] by others)!

What does
% id
say as uid=? (it probably *needs* to say root! Do you use sudo?)

(also interesting, but not essential, is the first few fields of:
# uname -a
to see what Linux distro & kernel version you are running)

When I tried those 2 commands (as both id root and user):
the -r said nothing (and ifconfig -a;netstat -rn output was UNchanged!)
but as id user the -v gave some perm{ission,itted} errors. As root, it seemed to say some good things.

For some 'DEEP' debugging:
Do you have strace? (% which strace if not, install the pkg)
Try:
% strace -f -o myfile dhclient -v
% grep ' = -' myfile | tail -20
For me, it showed several 'interesting' E..... errors (not counting 'expected' ENOENT)
[because it needs to run as root] I'm using manjaro linux distro, so what I get is different.

UPDATE: I booted debian 3.2... **single** (in XP VBox) and reproduced your EXACT error!
I had to ifconfig eth0 up, but it's 'stuck' 'in' IPv6 (& Idk ...)
So, the 'problem' does exist as id root. Sorry for my wrong guess.
Maybe someone else can help (before I figure it out). Smells FAQ-ish!

UPDATE2: try adding the net device name:
dhclient -v eth0
per: https://lists.isc.org/pipermail/dhcp...ch/016584.html
Works (fixed it) for me (but Idk why...)
