Description regis 1999-12-01 17:24:52 UTC
At boot time, I give the name of my Red Hat box to the DHCP server with the
-h option. At renewal time, it seems that pump does not give the name of
the box again. So, the linux box appears as "null" in the DHCP monitoring
program, after the first renewal time.

Moreover, after the first renewal time, "pump -s" does not show the domain
name and the gateway address anymore.

Thanks for your help.

I have a new version of pump which fixes these. Could I email you the
source tarball?

I have this problem also.  My DHCP is being served from a Cisco router.  Works
under Win98.  Under RH 6.1, it hangs every time starting eth0.  Eventually
tracked it down to pump.  Changed my setup to a static IP address (and gateway,
etc.) and it works fine now.  But I need to use DHCP.  Any help?
