3  Linux Stuff / General Linux questions / dhclient/ifplugd problem - DHCP client not working upon cable plugin on: May 24, 2010, 02:17:35 PM
Hey guys,

after getting my GuruPlug Server + some weeks ago, i am very happy with this nice gadged. I encountered a problem that the Plug wont get an IP address through DHCP when plugging a cable in (I only tested eth0). dmesg shows

eth0: link up, 100 Mb/s, full duplex, flow control disabled
ADDRCONF(NETDEV_CHANGE): eth0: link becomes ready

The Plug then doesnt assign an IP address through the DHCP server. My /etc/network/interfaces looks like that:

cat /etc/network/interfaces
# Used by ifup(8) and ifdown(8). See the interfaces(5) manpage or
# /usr/share/doc/ifupdown/examples for more information.
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

auto eth0
iface eth0 inet dhcp

I didnt change anything else inside the ifplugd configs and action configs. On a regular bootup there are DHCPDISCOVER on eth0. When I manually run the dhclient command, the Plug gets the IP from the DHCP server.

Anybody else who has the same problem or knows what to do in order to get auto DHCP discovery when plugging in the ethernet cable?

Thanks for all suggestions,

Hey Fantasia,

this is one of the most frequently asked questions about linux. I think if you dont know much about linux yet, you have to first get to know what linux is. There are so many distributions of linux out there, there will be definitely one distro which is suitable for every user. You cannot answer the question which linux is the best, because it depends on what you are going to do with it. On the other hand, everyone has another favorite distro. Fortunately, linux is able to handle nearly everything from low-cost, low-power plug computers and netbooks over desktop systems with multimedia capabilities as well as strong server applications and cluster computing. You can use linux on several platforms like arm and the common "PC" (x86 and 64-bit). The best thing about linux is that there is a strong user community and software directly from the package repository so that you can update and extend your linux system with ease.

The most important thing for someone starting with linux in my opinion is, that you must be willing to learn and take time for this adventure - you wont regret it.

If you want to know more, please answer first what you know about linux, which OS you are using right now, how experienced you are with computers and what you want to do with your linux system.
