Description carguin 1999-03-26 16:09:20 UTC
I have a DHCP network activated on system boot. When pump
runs, it does get an IP address and activates the interface,
but I cannot use the network. Attempts to ping tell me the
network is unreachable.

In order to get the network working, I use the
"dhcpcd-rhcn-1.3.17-pl3-1" package, and my own ifup-eth and
ifdown-eth0 scripts.

I am running Linux 2.2.4.

We need more information.  What is the output of 'route' after pump
runs?  Are your routes correct? What subnet are you on?

Comment 2 rebel 1999-03-30 15:26:59 UTC
Pump is completely unfunctional. Kernel 2.2.5, FreeBSD bootpd.

Comment 3 carguin 1999-03-30 20:06:59 UTC
When pump runs it doesn't seem to setup the routes correctly. I get:

132.177.56.0    *          255.255.252.0   U     0   0   0 eth0
127.0.0.0       *          255.0.0.0       U     0   0   0 lo

This seems born out, since I can ping machines on the 132.177.56.0
subnet, but I cannot, for instance, reach my nameservers.

This is using the default ifup and ifdown scripts, BTW.

With dhcdpcd, the route table is:

132.177.56.0    *               255.255.252.0   U   0 0 0 eth0
127.0.0.0       *               255.0.0.0       U   0 0 0 lo
default         student2-56gw.u 0.0.0.0         UG  0 0 0 eth0


While I'm at it, I might also add that dhcpcd tries to reuse to old IP
address is possible (ie, it request that first). This is *very*
nice... I've had the same IP address for the last two semesters :)When pump runs it doesn't seem to setup the routes correctly. I get:

132.177.56.0    *          255.255.252.0   U     0   0   0 eth0
127.0.0.0       *          255.0.0.0       U     0   0   0 lo

this should be fixed in pump 0.3, which will be in the next
starbuck. Please let me know if this is still a problem.
