Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1032819
broadcast address not configured
Last modified: 2014-01-23 09:11:10 EST
Description of problem:
The broadcast address is not set on my interfaces. After system start my interfaces have 0.0.0.0 as broadcast address
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
F20 with all updates installed as of 2013-11-20
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Start the system
2. in a terminal type: ifconfig p5p1
Broadcast address set to 0.0.0.0
Broadcast address set (for my 192.168.159.3 address: 192.168.159.255)
This issue occurs on my desktop system that has been installed with one of the TC's for Alpha, but I now see the same on my laptop that I installed with Fedora 20 Beta
This issue occurs on the ethernet interfaces as well on the WLan on the laptop
upstream commit 7eb12a5b21f87d7592ec2c5235d1ed90c4fac132
Is there a workaround for this issue short of manually configuring broadcast via ifconfig? I have a few scenarios where broadcast needs to work properly.
