Problems with dhcp-client
This may not be the most appropriate list, but as this pertains to my
firewall it seemed close enough. I have searched the web, debian
documentaion, and man pages but cannot find a solution.
When I issue "ifup -a" everything comes up as I expect. However, after
some period of time, the static address for eth0 has changed from that
specified in the interfaces file to an address provided by the dhcp server
in the LAN. I need for it to remain static as that is the default route
for the rest of the LAN.
My setup looks like this:
------------ | Cable | eth1 ---------- eth0 -----
| Internet | ----o | |o-----o| Firewall |o-----o| HUB |o----> LAN
------------ | modem | ---------- -----
o One of the machines in my LAN acts as a DHCP server for other boxen
on the LAN.
o The firewall runs dhcp-client to get network info from Adelphia
o The file /etc/dhclient.conf on the firewall is unchanged from the
The /etc/network/interfaces file on the firewall looks like:
iface eth0 inet static
iface eth1 inet dhcp
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
