    Hi @all,

    i have tried to configure the network of colinux since one week, but i couldn´t get work it.
    i check almost all network method except slirp.
    After very much try and error with tuntap. now i try again and again to get it work
    with pcap-bridge method. but it doesn´t work for me also.
    So i´m very tired of trying and now i need your help.

    Here are my interface settings in colinux:
    http://www.zendesign24.de/screenshots/bridged_method.JPG

    in the etc/resolv.conf
    nameserver is set to the wan nameserver which work fine
    for windows internet connection.

    in the config file i boot linux up with this settings:
    #mysettings
    eth0=pcap-bridge, name="VIA Rhine II Fast Ethernet Adapter"

    in windows this lan adapter is set on dhcp.

    if boot colinux i get this information about the the dhcp status:
    http://www.zendesign24.de/screenshots/dhcp_discover.JPG

    why i don´t get an ip from my dhcp server?
    can anybody help me?

      > eth0=pcap-bridge, name="VIA Rhine II Fast Ethernet Adapter"

      The line is wrong. The syntax is
        ethX=pcap-bridge,<network connection name>,<MAC>,<promisc>
      Please read parameters of ethX in your installed file "colinux-daemon.txt".

      You should write:
        eth0=pcap-bridge,"VIA Rhine II Fast Ethernet Adapter"

      Check the logs from colinux-daemon, that the name "VIA Rhine II Fast Ethernet Adapter" was found by conet-bridged-daemon.
