Re: Help with kernel log



Dave, I believe if you look at your /etc/services file, you will find that
UDP port 68 is reserved for bootpc.  That means that for some reason the
bootp protocol is being called by your localhost machine, to which your
firewall is denying access to the ethernet NIC.  You could have compiled 
the Bootp support into your kernel or as a module.  Not a biggie.  Either
disable the module or compile a new kernel.  Really, you should not bootp
support on your firewall, unless you're using your firewall for thing other
than security (not recommended).

Good luck!
