Thanks a lot for your reply, David
Yes, I'm running quite old dhcpd version (3.0.1). This is the version
that CentOS 4.6 has in its repo.
I'm using the dhcp in a cable network (docsis). All DHCP requests from
clients are being relayed to the dhcp server by the main router's (CMTS)
So, my doubt is, who is responsible for that 0.0.0.0 source address in
the INFORM packet? Is it the client's machine or router's relay agent
We had an incident last Friday in our network.
After this line in the log (I've just changed the real IP to 22.214.171.124) we
stopped receiving dhcp traffic until we have restarted the router 2
May 15 21:19:51 mydhcpserv dhcpd: DHCPINFORM from 126.96.36.199 via eth1:
unknown subnet 0.0.0.0
If anyone has experienced something like this before or knows of how I
could obtain more information to resolve it, if it happens againg,
Thanks in advance.
