problem with DHCPD and a core that is not a router.
« on: November 21, 2007, 05:51:21 pm »
 I have opted to not replace my entire network and firwall with the core. I would prefer to keep my firewall as it is and just run my core as a client on my internet network. I read the wiki and various docs and understand how important DHCP is in how LinuxMCE works.

 I have disabled DHCP on my firewall and have configured it on my core.

My problem is that the core keep telling itself that it is the router and keeps reconfiguring the dhcpd config files to tell everyone in the building that it is the gateway and that it is the dhcp server. I had simmilar issues with Motion not having settings i wanted so i recompiled it... Please tell me i can tell LinuxMCE some defaults for the the router and dns so when it rewrites the config it will do it correctly.

The core's dhcpd.conf file should include a routers option that points at your desired router. I have updated the DHCP wiki page. Please report whether that change works, or whether you still have problems.
