Description sahag 2001-08-04 13:24:50 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.3) Gecko/20010802

Description of problem:
I am using dhcp ethernet connection. When I configure my eth0 adapter in
"neat" as DHCP client it adds the following line to configuration file

on the other hand the program /sbin/ifup which enables networking at boot
time has the following lines #24-26

if [ "${BOOTPROTO}" = "bootp" -o "${BOOTPROTO}" = "dhcp" ]; then          

as you can see ifup is doing if BOOTPROTO="dhcp" with small letters while
neat is writing it with capital letters. 

After i changed in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 
DHCP -> dhcp my ethernet connection started to work.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.try to configure dhcp client connection woth redhat-network-config "neat"


Actual Results:  the network was not working

Expected Results:  the network should work

Additional info:

after i replaces DHCP to dhcp everything works perfectly
