    SubjectKernel IP-Autoconfiguration.
    Hello,


    Is the kernel IP-Autoconfiguration broken in the late 2.2.x serie?
    I have three machines in a tiny network:

    "dharma": Linux 2.2.5, ISC DHCP
    "cutter": windows 95
    "cryo": Linux 2.2.7 (not the latest, but the most stable ;o)


    dharma is serving dhcp-/bootprequest on this network. cryo is set to
    obtain it's ip-config at boot-time. Whenever cryo boots, it sends
    bootp-requests. But the requests eventually times out. Looking in
    the logs on dharma, I see:

    Jul 2 23:25:57 dharma dhcpd: BOOTREQUEST from 00:a0:24:02:14:87 via
    eth0
    Jul 2 23:25:57 dharma dhcpd: BOOTREPLY for 10.1.1.2 to cryo
    (00:a0:24:02:14:87)
    via eth0
    Jul 2 23:26:02 dharma dhcpd: BOOTREQUEST from 00:a0:24:02:14:87 via
    eth0
    Jul 2 23:26:02 dharma dhcpd: BOOTREPLY for 10.1.1.2 to cryo
    (00:a0:24:02:14:87)
    via eth0
    Jul 2 23:26:10 dharma dhcpd: BOOTREQUEST from 00:a0:24:02:14:87 via
    eth0
    Jul 2 23:26:10 dharma dhcpd: BOOTREPLY for 10.1.1.2 to cryo
    (00:a0:24:02:14:87)
    via eth0

    ... and so forth (10 times total - matches the number of times as set in
    ipconfig.c).

    The request arrives on dharma and is ack'ed ... so what is wrong?


    (dhcp-request from cutter (win95) is ack'ed as well (on both machines):

    Jul 2 23:33:36 dharma dhcpd: DHCPDISCOVER from 00:20:af:0f:4e:95 via
    eth0
    Jul 2 23:33:36 dharma dhcpd: DHCPOFFER on 10.1.1.3 to 00:20:af:0f:4e:95
    via eth
    0
    Jul 2 23:33:36 dharma dhcpd: DHCPREQUEST for 10.1.1.3 from
    00:20:af:0f:4e:95 vi
    a eth0
    Jul 2 23:33:36 dharma dhcpd: DHCPACK on 10.1.1.3 to 00:20:af:0f:4e:95
    via eth0)


    I added this line to /etc/lilo.conf:

    append = "ip=::::::bootp"

    to force it to use the server-defaults. (I _ran_ lilo afterwards ;o)


    I have also tried without the 'append' line, but with no luck.


    So my question is simple: what am I doing wrong?



    Kind regards,


    Brian
