I've set up an OpenBSD box running dhcpd. I've got it configured to
serve out a small range of IPs dynamically and the rest statically
assigned to the NICs MAC address.
The the WXP boxes can snag an IP in the dynamically assigned range if
there isn't an IP statically assigned but the Linux boxes can't. I can
statically assign an IP to the Linux boxes but not dynamically. I've
tried three different flavors of Linux. They all display the same
These directives in /etc/dhcpd.conf should do the trick.
# unknown clients placed in this range.
range 184.108.40.206 220.127.116.11;
Am I missing something here on the dhcpd side? I just don't understand
why I can assign an IP based on the MAC address though dhcpd but can't pick
up one dynamically. It is even more confusing why the Windows boxes can
handle this but the Linux boxes can't:)
To know the truth is to distort the Universe.
