    OpenBSD ifconfig

    Hey ashcrow, today my ISP had a problem and the dc0 interface (public) on my OpenBSD firewall timed out. How do I bring it back up?

    When it timed out did it respond with an all 0 number?

    Check /etc/dhclient.conf and make sure cable host is there.

    Also make sure your not blocking them with pf :P

    Re: OpenBSD ifconfig

    Code:
    $ cat dhclient.conf |grep cable
    $
    What do you suggest?

    But I meant, do I need to kill dhclient and start it again and that's it? *Or are there other things to do?


    Edit: Weird... I intentionally killed dhclient and started it again and it worked. Are dhcp timeouts different?

    I don't think they are diffrent (unless it was dhcpd timeout ...). dhclient just needed a boost I guess. Happens everyonce in a while. I *THINK* it needs restarting wheen a new IP from a diffrent source happens but I am not sure.
