RE: Help with kernel log
I have been puzzled with this message in kernel log for several months now.
Everything in the message is identical except port (68 instead of 8777)
Also my setup is very similar to yours (Debian box on cable modem as
Frequency of logging varies from 15s to couple of minutes. Then it stops for
several days and than it starts again.
I wonder if somebody have explanation of this phenomenon.
Thank you all
