Re: Son of Re: [K12OSN] x86 thin client apparently ignoring DHCPOFFERfrom LTSP



Hmmm...I had a similar problem and tested it with an alternate DHCP server (in my case, a Cisco router). This may sound like heresy, but solely as a troubleshooting technique (i. e. not a production solution!), would it be possible for you to set up, say, an NT Server with the MS DHCP server, just to see if it's the thin client itself or the ISC DHCP daemon?

All of this message did not get to you last time, so I will try again.

I have a 1GHz Micron server running LTSP V3.0 connected by a crossover cable to a 233 MHz Gateway client. I booted the Gateway with a ROM floppy and it successfully boots and runs as a thin client. This is really cool. The relevant parts of /var/log/messages for this are

Jan 22 21:37:14 Bootle dhcpd: DHCPDISCOVER from 00:a0:cc:64:8b:dd via eth0
Jan 22 21:37:15 Bootle dhcpd: DHCPOFFER on 192.168.0.253 to 00:a0:cc:64:8b:dd via eth0
Jan 22 21:37:15 Bootle dhcpd: DHCPREQUEST for 192.168.0.253 (192.168.0.254) from 00:a0:cc:64:8b:dd via eth0

Jan 22 21:37:20 Bootle dhcpd: DHCPOFFER on 192.168.0.253 to 00:a0:cc:64:8b:dd via eth0

I then rebooted the Micron and attached a VAIO notebook with the crossover cable. The VAIO shows the following (as best I could copy it) while it tries to boot from its floppy:

.000021.0000 done
ROM segment 0x0800 length 0x4000 reloc 0x9400
A20 enabled via bios
Etherboot 5.0.8 (GPL) Tagged ELF for [EEPRO100]
Boot from (N)etwork or from (L)ocal? N
Probing...[EEPRO100]Found Intel EthernetExpressPro100 82562EM ROM address 0x0000
Ethernet addr: 08:00:46:13:88:29
Searching for server (DHCP)..


Then it freezes and goes no further. The relevant part of /var/log/messages for the VAIO are

Jan 22 21:49:13 Bootle dhcpd: DHCPDISCOVER from 08:00:46:13:88:29 via eth0
Jan 22 21:49:14 Bootle dhcpd: DHCPOFFER on 192.168.0.252 to 08:00:46:13:88:29 via eth0


Any ideas what is going wrong here? Thanks for the help.
