DHCP problem in BSD Unix

DHCP problem in BSD Unix

DHCP problem in BSD Unix


The BSD unix has configured for dhcp server as well firewall. clients are obtaining properely ip address and they could get into my remote server also.

I am not able to ping from dhcp server to client boxs, but I could ping only one network printer in that network  

Some time I can ping from locally to some of the clients and also I could ping from remotely.

Help please

RE: DHCP problem in BSD Unix

Do you ping by name?? Do you have a DNS or how do you resolve names??

I am not able to ping by name also. that site is connected through DSL moderm. This BSD box should act like LAN to LAN


RE: DHCP problem in BSD Unix

Morsing is correct, what are you using for dns?
