<RicardoPerez>
hi! anybody knows where and when an LTSP client configures its network parameters via DHCP? My LTSP clients are unable to get their broadcast address from the server
03:29
<Appiah>
umm
03:29
are you using the ltsp dhcp server?
03:30
(thats default)
03:30
then check your dhcpd.conf
03:31
that and lts.conf can alter your clients network settings
03:32
<RicardoPerez>
Appiah: hi!
03:33
the dhcp server seems to be right, because after login into root in the LTSP client, I do "udhcpc eth0" and it gets its broadcast address perfectly well
03:33
so it seems to be that dhcpd.conf is right. it includes an "option broadcast-address" line
03:36
but the LTSP client gets a 0.0.0.0 broadcast address :(... I need to put a script with an "udhcpc eth0" line in RCFILE_01 in order to the client do a new DHCP request and then the broadcast address is getting right
03:40
Hummmmm... if I do "cat /proc/cmdline" in the LTSP client, I get the following:
03:41
ro initrd=initrd.img quiet splash nbdport=2001 BOOT_IMAGE=vmlinuz ip=192.168.0.2:192.168.0.1:192.168.0.1:255.255.0.0 BOOTIF=01-08-00-27-d6-3b-41
03:42
according to /opt/ltsp/i386/usr/share/initramfs-tools/scripts/init-premount/udhcp:
03:42
# 2) One NIC, static ip=<client-ip>:<server-ip>:<gw-ip>:<netmask>:<hostname>:<device>:<autoconf>:
03:42
# It'll use the static IP.
03:43
# 3) One NIC, IPAPPEND 1 or 3 or ip=<client-ip>:<server-ip>:<gw-ip>:<netmask>:
03:43
# It'll use the static IP.
03:43
it seems to be that i'm in the 3) case
03:44
so the client sets up the client ip, server ip, gateway ip and netmask statically
03:44
and udhcpc does nothing here
03:45
however, it doesn't sets up the broadcast address
04:33
<Appiah>
may I ask what are you trying to do?
04:34
set the broadcast adress which seams to be 0.0.0.0 per default?
04:40
<RicardoPerez>
no no, i'm trying to set the good broadcast for my clients, but they get 0.0.0.0 instead of their correct broadcast
04:45
<Appiah>
ok
04:45
did you modify dhcpd.conf?
04:46
<RicardoPerez>
my dhcpd.conf is right, i think, because subsequent "udhcpc eth0" invocations from the ltsp clients sets up the broadcast address perfectly
04:47
<Appiah>
well did you?
04:47
<RicardoPerez>
yes, I modify the dhcpd.conf a bit
04:48
<Appiah>
can you upload the dhcpd.conf to pastebin?
04:48
<RicardoPerez>
ok
04:49

04:54
<Appiah>
is udhcpc the default dhcp client?
04:56
<RicardoPerez>
i suppose so... i didn't change nothing related with that
04:57
<Appiah>
/usr/share/udhcpc/default.script should have $BROADCAST , but I wonder if that file is being read during the second time
04:57
if I remeber correctly , LTSP clients will ask for dhcp twice
05:00
<RicardoPerez>
did you mean /etc/udhcpc/default.script?
05:05
<Appiah>
err ye :D
05:07
<RicardoPerez>
yeah, i have success hardcoding /opt/ltsp/i386/usr/share/initramfs-tools/scripts/init-premount/udhcpc after a bit of hacking...
05:07
but that's an ugly solution

<Appiah>
think you should post on the mailing list and see if people get the same problem
05:15
might be a bug
05:19
<RicardoPerez>
yes, i think so, too
05:20
thank you very much, Appiah
