Re: dhclient problem



Hello,

i solved it, 2 steps are needed.
first you need to create /etc/dhcp/dhclient.conf

write the request options inside the file, in my example;

request subnet-mask, broadcast-address, time-offset, routers, domain-name, domain-name-servers, host-name, nis-domain, nis-servers, ntp-servers, static-routes;


this file is used by network service. If i restart network service after creation of the file, i got the static routes in my routing table.


But this file doesnt effect NetworkManager service. So if u r using Gnome (im not sure about KDE) you need to create per interface dhclient.conf files.

- ln -s /etc/dhcp/dhclient.conf /etc/dhclient-eth0.conf
- ln -s /etc/dhcp/dhclient.conf /etc/dhclient-wlan0.conf

Thats it.

Regards

i learned that is caused by dhclient's default dhcp requests*. If i add
"static-routes" as a request parameter to dhclient binary, i can get the
static route information from dhcp server.
Now im looking for howto make this setting auto/permanent. I looked for
dhclient.conf on the system but there isn't.

Is there anyone has a working dhclient.conf file to share?

* from dhclient man page;

The default option list is:
subnet-mask, broadcast-address, time-offset, routers,
domain-name, domain-name-servers, host-name, nis-domain,
nis-servers, ntp-servers

Hello,

we have a network with Window 2k DHCP server configured with "ip
addr/netmask/dns/default gw/static route" publishing.
Windows boxes can receive all these settings properly but my fedora 11
doesnt receive the static route option from dhcp. The other settings are
ok.

Any advices?

Regards
