I changed /etc/sysconfig/network/dhcp DHCLIENT_SET_HOSTNAME from "yes"
to "no" and now I can get the IP from the ISP DHCP server without
Just because im curious, in what way can that setting make the DHCP
client not get an IP, and *only* when the firewall is active?
Should I report this as a bug to the maker of dhcpcd or is it a SuSE
bug, or maybe it isn't a bug at all?
