weird dhclient problem
I recently upgrade my Wheezy and Sid box, and find a weird problem about
My boxes are in an intranet (my campus),so I want to access the stuff
in the intranet (ftp and http). The intranet has its own dhcp server,
so we can get an ip and netmask by dhclient. In my squeeze box ,
is fine , I can then acess the ftp and http servers in the intranet.
But in my Wheezy and Sid boxes, it's sucks. Here is my
wolf@wheezy:~$ cat /etc/network/interfaces
# This file describes the network interfaces available on your system
# and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5).
# The loopback network interface
iface lo inet loopback
# The primary network interface
#NetworkManager#iface eth0 inet dhcp
iface dsl-provider inet ppp
pre-up /sbin/ifconfig eth0 up # line maintained by pppoeconf
iface eth0 inet dhcp
As you can see, the last line "iface eth0 inet dhcp" means I can
get an ip via ifupdown and still use the dhcp to configure eth0.
#ifdown eth0;ifup eth0
Ok, its fine,ping other hosts(for example 10.20.79.1) in the
intranet is ok .
I paste the process here (http://pastie.org/2142558)
I cannot figure it out why the dhclient command failed though it
actually get and ip and netmask and the route are even the same, while
ifupdown is ok ?
Yes, I use Debian GNU/L
