I am using PPPOE connection over eth0 interface. When i connect my dsl connection, system creates a new interface named pppoe and assign a ip to it(Internet is working). But eth0 interface doesn't get any ip address. My ISP has dhcp server. As a result my eth0 interface should get a local ip. I checked in windows, it gets two ip (one local and one global). For that reason, i can't access local server's(media server) in ubuntu but works fine in windows. How to solve this problem?

thanks in advance.
