I've just spent a few hours installing NeoRouter on my SOHO Umbuntu servers (mostly 9.04), and came across a weird problem.

Each one installed fine, and would join/sign-in to the domain no problem. But each one would report there is no computer to add. A quick check revealed that each one was assigning itself the same IP (10.0.0.2), which was the IP assigned to the first Ubuntu 9.04 client i added. After playing for a while, i have found that in the Client.xml file, the MAC address field is blank ("00:00:00:00..."). So, i stopped the nrservice, pasted the correct MAC address into the Client.xml, restarted nrservice and re-logged into the Domain/VPN using nrclientcmd. After doing that, i was able to 'addcomputer' and it was correctly assigned a new IP as expected.

Has anyone else come across this? Is this a known bug? Did i "fix" it in the correct manner?

Incidently, i also installed the NeoRouter client on some CentOS and a Windows computer - no problems.

Cheers,
Robin

hi Robina,

How many Ethernet adapter do you have on the Ubuntu? Can you post the result of ifconfig?

Hi Robina,

Can you try renaming eth12 to eth0? That should fix the issue for you.
