Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 165699
NM can not connect if dhcp does not offer a default route
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:11 EST
Description of problem:
NM seems to expect the dhcp server to deliver a default route when connecting to
a wireless access point. If no default route is offered, the following appears
in the syslog and connecting fails:
dhcdbd: message_handler: message handler not found under /com/redhat/dhcp/eth1
for sub-path eth1.dbus.get.routers
NetworkManager: <WARNING> (): get_ip4_uint32(): error calling 'routers', DHCP
daemon returned error 'org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.UnknownMethod', message
'Method "routers" with signature "" on interface "com.redhat.dhcp.dbus.get"
doesn't exist '.
The connection is then torn down.
The dhcp server offers an IP address, a netmask, a broadcast address and a DNS
server, which is enough for the case in question.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set up dhcp server without "option routers"
2. try to connect with NM
