DHCP - need help reading logs



  • Hi,

    I am setting up an Ubuntu machine for my TV and have assigned its MAC a static IP address of 192.168.10.36. But at the time of installation the machine is not able to get connected to the network. Attached is the log of packets captured on port 67-68 for this MAC and to me it seems like pfSense is providing the right IP (192.168.10.36) and the problem is likely on the Ubuntu machine.

    But would like a second opinion from those who knows how to read these logs better than me and will appreciate any pointers.
    Thanks.

  • @PM_13 said in DHCP - need help reading logs:

    to me it seems like pfSense is providing the right IP (192.168.10.36) and the problem is likely on the Ubuntu machine.

    Agree.
    The client also sends its request with the correct IP to the server:

    Requested-IP Option 50, length 4: 192.168.10.36
    

    So he already accepts the DHCP offer.
    The server responses with an acknowledge, so the DHCP session should be finalized, but the client sends a new Discover after that.



  • @viragomann Thanks for the confirmation. Since this is a static IP I worked around by assigning it manually on the Ubuntu box which seems to be working for now!😇
