Description dittrich 1999-05-28 20:30:11 UTC
I've been using, with RH 5.2, ipchains rules and scripts as
written by Robert Zeigler:


Unfortunately, under 6.0, the dhcpcd interface information
file is no longer created, so ipchains rules use the
IP address I had weeks ago and thus don't work.

Why was this removed, or what has it been changed to?
I don't see anything in the ipup script (besides running
pump to manage the DHCP requests) to allow me to fix this,
short of writing my own script to extract this information
from output of pump.  This seems like a bug to me, since
getting this information from dhcpcd is critical for
using ipchains.  Please fix this.

Thanks very much.
Dave Dittrich

I believe that
	mkdir /etc/dhcpc
the info file may once again be created. If I'm wrong, then
please reopen this bug.
