DHCP - dhclient not working
I use debian with 2.4.22 kernel and i want it to work with my cable modem
and dhcp also.
So, first i had problems in my daemon log that my kernel was not configured
well (i needed to install packet_socket and socket_filtering in the kernel
so i did).
The kernel problem is solved, but when i run dhclient on eth0 or just
dhclient, whatever, i get the error that it can't get a lease.
and why not? windoze boxes work with the same cable modem without a problem
so there is no problem with the modem or the ISP.
what do i do wrong and how can i solve it!
this is info from my daemon.log:
dhcpdiscover on eth0 to 255.255.255.255 port 67 interval 8
no working leases in persistent database
