The dhcp server has netmask /23, and are also handing out this netmask
I have lots of clients running FreeBSD, Windows and OS X not
complaining. I do however, have one OS X client that's been constantly
complaining, and recently also an Archlinux machine. It used to work on
the Linux client up until recently.
It might be the client, in which case I should probably ask some
Lunux-folks, but since one of the apples also have a problem, I thought
I might be the server.
Can I diagnose this any further?
