I am currently trying to build a dhcp and firewall server for my home. I followed the instructions posted on the Ubuntu Forums about setting up such a server.
As far as I can tell, I don't have any syntax errors. I tried connecting my Windows 7 laptop to my eth1 cable, but am not getting any IP address from my server.
Would appreciate the help.
On my server I've installed Ubuntu 12.04 server version.
When I check the leases for isc-dhcp-server
tail /var/lib/dhcp/dhcpd.leases #The format of this file is documented in the dhcpd.leases(5) manual page. #This lease file was written by isc-dhcp-4.1-ESV-R4 server-druid "\000\001\000\001\030q\327L\000\340R\374\342\213";
