Switch asking for DHCP BOOTP
Posted on 2004-05-02
I have an Allied Telesysn AT-8024 switch installed in my network, and it is not working correctly.
With ethereal I can see it is sending out broadcast packets from 0.0.0.0 with the right mac address of the switch... asking for BOOTP or DHCP.
Usually, the switch has remote management software via telnet and http. Also, all my other switches have bootp and dhcp disabled.
I have the software and everything needed for the switch... unfortunately the box is located in an attic... not easily accessible.
I'm running a redhat box..... would setting up a dhcp server or bootp server work?
