Trying to find my dhcp setting in linux

Q: Trying to find my dhcp setting in linux

I had my network set up but had to reinstall CentOS cause my email wasn't functioning and there were too many things wrong due to an install of a previous application called Ravencore.

Got a question, I need to find a way to enable (DMZplus mode)is to get it to enable DHCP and I can't figure out how to do that on linux. I figured it out on windows.

I go to Network connections>proprieties>TCP/IP>proprieties>Advanced> and it's on that next screen.

But where in centos? Liz

Preferred Solution: Trying to find my dhcp setting in linux

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi southernlady,

First, you should check out the man pages for dhcp, and dhclient.

Then try the following:
Find the option under the "System Settings" menu -> "network"
or
Run the gui client, system-config-network and then edit the network device to change from manual IP settings to dhcp.

I assume a reboot is required after the change.

Hope this helps,

I have router with DHCP setting 192.168.2.1/24 and netmask 32 (prevent file sharing). I have AP connect to the LAN of the router in bridge mode.

I have a question about my ZoneAlarm Z100G Wireless Router.

I'm trying to set it up as a wireless access point (secondary router) under my primary router. The primary router acts as my DHCP server. So I've disabled the (wired) DHCP server on the ZoneAlarm.

But the ZoneAlarm also has a setting to disable / enable the wireless DHCP server. Does anyone know if the DHCP server for the wireless should be enabled?

When I connect to the wireless, I get a limited access. With the wireless DHCP server enabled, I can ping the ZoneAlarm router, but not the primary router. With the wireless DHCP server disabled, I can't ping even the ZoneAlarm router.

Running Windows 7, periodically I get an events log message: "The DHCP allocator has disabled itself on IP address 192.168.2.1, since the IP address is outside the 192.168.137.0/255.255.255.0 scope from which addresses are being allocated to DHCP clients. To enable the DHCP allocator on this IP address, change the scope to include the IP address, or change the IP address to fall within the scope."
I want to continue using the 192.168.2.x /255.255.255.0 range so how and where do I change the DHCP allocator scope.
 

A:Setting DHCP Allocator IP address scope

I do see a discrepancy in the IP address:

192.168.137.0
255.255.255.0

192.168.2.x
255.255.255.0

The 255's mark which portion of the IP address is reserved for network routing and which portion is for computers/devices.

Basically, your DHCP server is handing out IP addresses for the 192.168.137.x network, but the Network card of the server is configured to be on the 192.168.2.x network.

I recommend changing the DHCP server scope to remove 192.168.137.0/255.255.255.0 and to hand out IP addresses for 192.168.2.0/255.255.255.0

Hopefully this makes sense.

Hi

I've been looking all over the internet to try and resolve this, but I couldn't find a solution... here goes:

I've been unsuccessful in trying to set up my Verizon DSL connection. According to Verizon tech support, the phone line is fine and my problem in connecting lies at home.

The details:

-I haven't been able to run account setup for my DSL service because I'm getting a problem in connecting

-I'm running Win2k

-I'm connected to the DSL Modem with a Belkin NIC

-The connection shows that it's active, BUT it only sends packets, doesn't receive them.

-When I ran ipconfig, my ip was in the 169.254.xxx.xxx range, and Autoconfiguration Enabled read Yes

-When I went to release my IP, I got a message that said
"All adapters bound to DHCP do not havee DHCP addresses. The addresses were automatically configured and can not be released."

-From the Microsoft web site, I followed instructions to disable APIPA found here ->microsoft support link

-Now ipconfig reads my ip as all zeros, and I get an error when I try to run the command /renew that says the DHCP server is unreachable

Help?
Thanks in advance

I always set my wifi network adaptor proporties Ipv4 to "obtain an IP address automatically" . Same for the DNS server. My landlord's acess point gives me an IP address but at some point the network adaptor settings gets changed to static IP and when I look at the IPv4 proporties the next time I see static IP with the correct last IP address assigned from the access point filled in to the fields. This isn't supposed to work this way and the problem is that on the next connection to the access point, the AP rejects the log in at it's captive portal password page with these settings. The only way to get a new connection with log in to the AP is for me to go back into the adaptor's proporties of IPv4 and set it back to "obtain an IP address automatically".

Ive tried two different netgear wifi adaptors each with its own driver and get the same result. Its very frustrating and i can't imagine any reason for this but wonder if The system has some virus under it. I posted on the Netgear forum and got many views but no replies.

I have CompTIA and Cisco network certifications and work in IT but have never come accross this or any mention of somthing that would arbitrarily change a network adaptors settings.

Hi,

I moved a Win2K machine from a domain to a workgroup which uses a Linksys cable router as its DHCP server. I'm having trouble making the machine to pick up the new DHCP server. It thinks it cannot locate the DHCP service so it keeps getting assigned the APIPA (169.254.x.x) address. BTW, back in the domain, this machine was assigned a static IP address through client reservation because it was running a service. Does anyone have an idea? Thanks.
 

A:Help Win2K Pro to find new DHCP server

Have you changed all the domain settings so that its not still looking for the domain when it starts up? If the machine's name is part of a FQDN get rid of the extensions so that it has an "old fashioned" single name.

Also clear out all of the settings for DNS that may have been set, make them all blank in case the system is trying to find it that way.

Remove any other network protocols that are installed except TCP/IP.

Hello,

I have a connection problem that really has me lost.

Here's what I CAN do:
* I can ping a local machine after start up before I release my ip address
* My Local Area Connection says I am connected and firewalled
* I can ping 127.0.0.1 after start up before I release my ip address
* I can ping 192.168.0.1 after start up before I release my ip address

BUT I cannot access the internet or ping a website

I then successfully release my ip address via cmd but cannot renew my ip address and still cannot access the internet. And after I release I can no longer ping any ip address.

I am trying to fix a friends Sony Viao desktop, model PCV-C11L that is running xp home sp3. I have dsl and I am using a d-link wireless router. My dsl and router work fine as I am running 2 other computers off of them sucessfully (wired and wireless). I am assuming it is not the ISP, modem or router because my friends Viao would not renew at his house or my house. It does not appear to be the NIC card either because I bought him a new NIC, installed it, and had the same problem.

Any help is greatly appreciated!!

The before sample looks normal; you can't ping internet sites?

try thisPing by address eg;
ping 74.125.67.100
(which is google)
then Ping by domainName
ping google.com​BOTH should work (before release/renew)

As to failing to renew; that's typical of a router which needs a firmware update.

btw; how are you connected to the Internet (Adsl vs Cable)?

Go to your router config page (put the router address 192.168.0.1/ into your browser)
login, then find the WAN settings page.

TRY a release/renew on that page; it MUST succeed,

I tried installing SP1 on a desktop Vista, with other windows updates, and my internet stopped working. My Xbox and another computer (XP SP2) work fine and haven't noticed a difference.

A:Linux for a newbie setting up a server

If you don't care about a gui, then something like CentOS would be best.

However, almost any linux distribution can work well as a server, and the're all pretty much the same to install.

If you want a gui, go with Ubuntu or Fedora, since you want to check out the desktop environments anyways. I prefer Ubuntu personally, but either is fine.

Once you've installed the OS, go to the package manager and search for/install the following:

-Apache (web stuff)
-Php5
-Maybe mysql for database stuff
-Samba for windows sharing

Be warned that it might be a bit slow while running a gui on a P2

A:Unable to find Microsoft DHCP Server Service.

What operating system are you running? Windows XP Home and Pro do not include a DHCP server so I question the appropriateness of Microsoft's suggestion to stop a service you may not have.

If you mean DHCP client, then that can be turned off. However, you need to assign a static IP address and configure your router or modem to not try assigning the same address.

Setting up a firewall using Linux 2.4.x/2.6.x: a solution (and how iptables works)

Hello all,

Here is a solution using iptables in order to have a fully functional firewall. I'll first put in the commands themselves, and will explain in later posts why and how it works.

The setup is the following:
* the machine acts as a router for a local network with IP network/mask of 192.168.1.0/24, on eth0 ;
* the interface is ppp0, its address is dynamic.

Here goes, supposing that your iptables rules are blank:

#
# The central part of it - conntrack, ie stateful firewalling
#
iptables -N connstate
iptables -A connstate -m state --state RELATED,ESTABLISHED -j ACCEPT
iptables -A connstate -m state --state INVALID -j DROP
iptables -A connstate -m state --state NEW -p tcp ! --syn -m limit --limit 2/sec -j LOG --log-prefix "NEWNOTSYN: "
iptables -A connstate -m state --state NEW -p tcp ! --syn -j REJECT --reject-with tcp-reset
iptables -A connstate -m state --state NEW -j RETURN
iptables -A connstate -j LOG --log-level CRIT --log-prefix "CONNTRACK BARF: "

# For all three filter chains: drop everything by default - first chain to go through is

A:Setting up a firewall properly using Linux 2.4.x/2.6.x: a solution

Stateful firewalling, what it is

OK, how it works...

First of all, at the center of it all is the connstate table, which makes use of the ip_conntrack module. What this module does is stateful firewalling.

What this means is that it keeps track of "connections" at large in a table, ie it knows whether a packet it receives belongs to an existing dialog. It puts packet in basically 4 categories:


NEW: this packet doesn't belong to any existing dialog, it initiates a new one;
ESTABLISHED: this packet belongs to an already existing dialog;
RELATED: this packet does not belong to an existing dialog, however it is acknowledged as related to an existing one. The most common example of this is any ICMP error (the payload of an ICMP packet contains the headers of the offending packet, this is why conntrack can relate an error to a dialog).
INVALID: this packet wants to be part of an existing dialog but isn't; or, more simply, it is malformed (bad headers, bad checksum, you name it).

Hi, this is my first post here so i hope uŽll go nice on me

My private network is configured like this, ADSL ISP -> Fedora Core server/router -> switched network to one linux workstation and my win/Suse workstation.. As i bought a nokia N95 mobile and also got a free Zyxel Wifi router from my ISP i thought that iŽll set up the wlan now. But thinks aint working as planed, ie not working at all.

i use static ip troughout my LAN, 10.0.0.0/24 , and i connected the zyxel to the switch after my linux server , configurating it like my computers with static ip. ie 10.0.0.10, gateway 10.0.0.1 as the linux router and DNS as my ISP uses. For a test to see if i got out trough the server i conf. the LANpart in the router to 10.0.0.11, since the WAN and LAN are reprecent seperat NIC this shouldnt be a problem? anyhow it didnt work, and neither did the WLAN.

i read in some article that u need to use subnet to get this to work but i have a hard time beliving that. also, is there a way i can reach the LAN trough the WiFi?, i only want it as an access point in part of the excisting LAN but thats maybe impossible with WLAN routers?
please give me some tips on configuration, my head is acheing and i cant think clearly

I'm using my recently bought T480s with Linux instead of the pre-installed Windows, because my work requires it. However I'd like to install the Windows copy inside a virtual machine to run on said laptop sometimes. I purposefully upgraded to Win Professional when configured laptop to buy (yes, it is OK to run the same copy of windows inside a VM run on the same hardware). How may I find the Windows Key? it's not on the back of the laptop. Thanks.

My computer crashed. Windows won't start but I can start it and access the hard drive from a Linux live CD (Linux Mint 12). I need to re-load Windows. I have a disc but how can I find my product key from Linux? My Windows copy is legit but the disc is not from Microsoft.

A:Find my Windows product key from Linux

What do you mean when you say the disc is not from Microsoft, who is it from ? Is it a recovery disc that came with the computer ?

What type of computer is it, laptop or desktop, if the OS came preloaded you should have a sticker on the machine with your product key.

If you can post back with a few more details I'm sure that one of the experts will be able to help you and Welcome to the Forum.

Hi, The bios can see the hard drive but not the linux installer. I heard a lot about the BIOS sata mode.  Unfortuneatly there is no option to change it from RAID to AHCI or disabled. Will there be a BIOS update for this in the near future? Or is there another work around?

Hi All
I'm looking for an application that will search drives on a Samba file server and find multiple copies of the same or similar filename.

I've googled and found a 97 version of "Spring Cleaning 2.0 An elegantly simple system maintenance utility from Aladdin Systems. " but this is only for mac.

Has anyone seen anything that would do what I need?
Thanks

3 days ago, I went to boot up my Dell XPS 8500 running Windows 7 Professional 64 bit (after having booted it up and used it earlier in the day with no problem, not having recently installed any software or made any configuration changes.) The result was a black screen with a blinking cursor in the upper left-hand corner. If I reset the computer, I got the Dell splash screen, but the F2 option to enter setup and the F12 option to choose boot devices did nothing--still got the black screen. I opened the case, removed and replaced the CMOS battery. This allowed me to get into BIOS. I then found that if I change the hard drive from RAID mode (what it's supposed to be, as I have a drive with an SSD cache) to AHCI, I could start to boot Windows, but after a few seconds of the "Starting Windows" screen, I would get a quick flash of a BSOD. I was able to see that the error was STOP, 7B. I was also able to get into the onboard Dell ePSA diagnostics, in which every test passed fine. I was able to boot from a Windows installation USB drive, and use the bootrec tool as many online guides describe. I used all the options and they all reported successful completion, but I still got the BSOD. I also downloaded a bootable standalone ISO of Windows Defender and ran it, and it cleaned up a few malicious files, but this had no effect on booting.

Greetings,
  I have several windows 8.1 machines connected to a private network.  The clients all obtain their first DHCP leases correctly and work well for a time. At some point after having been running for awhile, they get into a state where they start
ignoring the DHCP ACK messages from the DHCP server when they attempt to renew their leases (see attached pcap file).  They go on ignoring the responses to their DHCP Requests until they lose their IP addresses and then send a DHCP Discover and receive
a DHCP Offer.  At this point, they seem to accept their new address and move on until it is time to renew again, at which point they start ignoring their DHCP ACKs again and the cycle continues.  These machines will work for hours with no problems
whatsoever, but they all seem to experience this issue at some point every day.  When they get into the state where they are ignoring their DHCP acks, they will stay that way until they are rebooted.  Disabling and then re-enabling the adapter does
not seem to fix the issue.
 Does anyone have any idea what could be going on?  I'm pretty stumped at this point.

Thank you,
  Jason

I can't seem to find where I'd find what address may be connecting to my wireless router (something from outside the home) that may be gobbling up my DSL data. I have my iPhone on now, but do not see it's address listed within any of the settings. Wondering what I may be doing wrong? Thx DM

Hello,

Is you Wi-Fi network secured? WPA2 with AES encryption is best. What you need is a program to monitor the activities and bandwidth being allocated, try this free utility called NetBalancer, a lot more selections here.

Alright you know how in Windows 7 when you say click on an item thats on the right side of the folder for example, how windows 7 will auto scroll over 1 forcing you to have to move your mouse back over to click the item.. Is there anyway to disable this? Windows xp or 98 never did this and I find it aggravating as all hell when it does it. Sorry I can't explain it better. Any help be apprecated because this has been getting on my nerves since I first got windows 7.

A:A Setting to do with folders I cannot seem to find.

Not sure what you mean here. What program are you in when theis happens? When you say "Click on an item thats on the right side of a folder" What do you mean by "an item"? A file perhaps? Can you post a screenshot showing what you mean?

I'm running a simple network at home with a Linksys BEFSR41 router. I have two computers hooked up wired and a wireless router acting like an access point that I use for my laptop occasionally. Until this weekend I've been having no problems but I shut down the computers due to weather and now one of them is not able to communicate with any others on the network. The problem computer will get an address supplied to it by the router (DHCP server) but once it has it I cannot get any other connectivity. Of course this is hindering internet access on this computer. I can ping the loopback and assigned IP addresses w/o problems but when I ping the default gateway (router) and/or the other computer I get "Request timed out." I initially thought it was the NIC so I bought another one but still get the same issue. I've moved the cards to different PCI slots but no luck. I tested the cable running from the computer and the router but found no problems. I even tried resetting the TCP/IP stack but still didn't work. The computer in question is running WinXP SP2 with the original NIC being a Linksys LNE100TX and the new one being a D-Link DFE-530TX+.

Any clues on this? If more info is needed let me know--it's been a while since I've posted. Thanks in advance.
