Re: refresh IP from dhcp isp



In that case, there's a -r option to dhclient which according to the manpages is supposed to do a DHCP release.

I'm not sure what's wrong, but this doesn't actually do anything on my FC3 box. Tcpdump shows no DHCP_RELEASE packet is ever sent, and the original client doesn't exit either. But perhaps you might have better luck with it :)

Hi,

Basically when you down and up a DHCP configured
interface, your system
will have to request lease from the DHCP server
again. Usually the DHCP
server will give you back what you last had (or what
you asked for) if the
IP is available. So it is not unusual that your IP
does not change.

Or do you purposely want your IP address to change
for some reason?

How should I do this?


From the menu choose System Tools, then Network
Device Control, and
use
that to deactivate, then activate your ethernet
interface. If you did
not make your ethernet interface user
controllable,
then you might need
to run it as root. From the command-line
system-control-network will
prompt for root password and provide a network
configuration tool. But
you can select and deactivate, then activate
interfaces from there.

Thank you, I attempted as you suggested, as root:
it
did not change my IP address. I know that in WIN
XP, I
can ipconfig ip /release and /renew, so that is
what I
am looking for... OR i did something wrong...

thanks
kate

Yes, I specifically want to change the assigned IP address.
