Linux dhcp client not updating dns
Hi, My parents Windows 7 PC has suddenly stopped being able to connect to the Internet.Using the "Diagnose problem" feature in the Manage Network Interfaces panel results in a message claiming that it cannot reach the DNS server and that the connection needs to be reset. It is connected to a DSL router via an ethernet cable.Note: If you get “make not found” or “missing gcc” then you do not have the gcc compiler tools on your machine.You will need to install these in order to proceed.This short article was prompted by my question on the Debian-Administration forum site, where I was able to get some answers to the issues I faced and I did promise to post a solution if I got one.The version of ISC BIND DNS and DHCP servers installed by default in Debian stable are the older versions, which will not actually work together. Net SPF validation, Sender ID validation and a dns client and dns server implementation written in C#.
Note that I can't even ping the router at 192.168.2.1.
To Configure the Client As root again (or with sudo) issue the below command: You will then be prompted for your username and password for No-IP, as well as which hostnames you wish to update.
Be careful, one of the questions is “Do you wish to update ALL hosts”.
The NIC is set to dynamically receive its IP and DNS settings via DHCP which it obtains from the DSL router.
Executing ipconfig from a DOS prompt shows that this is occurring as expected, with an assigned IP of 192.168.2.10.
