Dear Cobalt Cube user,
as you might know I have some problems to set up the dhclient on my
cube. The cube had (as most cibes) the cobalt linux installed and was
connected by the ethernet port 1 to our LAN. At set time he picked up
the internet address from our dhcp server. I tried with your help now
the same thing under netBSD 1.6. However so far no success.I looked
through the dmesg file and noticed that netBsd assigns the MAC
address / eternet ports just different.
tlp0 had comes up with the MAC address of the port2 under linux and
tlp1 gets the MAC address from port 1 of linux
I think this is the reason why I can;t bring the client to work.
Connecting the cube to our LAN by the port 2 didn't help either,
because it looks like that the dhcp request gets only send out by
Because I'm by no mean a netBSD / Unix eppert, I might be wrong, but
it would be great if someone could confirm my observation.
PS: Setting up the ip / network settings static works - so in a way
its only a cosmetic problem
