DHCP Server issues (possibly IPv6 related?)
« on: October 08, 2006, 06:12:11 pm »
Hi all,

I've noticed that a number of my issues with Pluto stem from the fact that IPv6 is enabled at boot time.

I've commented out the line in /etc/modules.d/aliases that enables IPv6, however I am still having issues with the DHCP handing out IP Addresses etc.

My network is setup as follows:

ROUTER
     |
HYBRID/CORE
     |
SWITCH   --  WLAN AP
     |
   MD

I cannot get either the MD or any clients connected to the AP to pick up an IP Address from the core, however I know that the DHCP server is running on the correct interface (eth1), the switch and all the cables work and so do the clients.

Does anyone have any thoughts on why this might be?

Thanks in advance,
xMarks

Further to this, when DHCPD starts, it issues the error message:

sit0: unknown hardware address type 776

I believe that sit0 is a bridge between IPv6 and IPv4, can this be anything to do with the fact that I cannot get DHCP to give leases out properly?

After trying three network cards, I finally changed the Kernel boot options to Verbose and discovered that the FXO card I was using is throwing off the entire system.
