Yes, I know. Sorry, this is strange and special stuff to do it all
through ssh. Anyways, thanks for your help.
Last note, I got it working, but don't ask me why or how. I gave up
using dhclient as a dhcp client, and installed dhcpcd-1.3.22-pl4. This
setup, using "/sbin/dhcpcd -d -h HOSTNAME" worked. -d for log
everything, and -h for hostname of course. And after booting, I can
actually ping the server! And when trying to connect with ssh, I get a
nice "Connection refused". Ahhhh, I never thought a "connection
refused" would be so nice to see. ;) So, it seems to be working now.
I will check route -n and see what I can find out. Since I really want
to know why it did not work before. Errr. So, I will investigate, and
let you know if I find anything. Maybe it just wanted a dhcp client
that was rfc2131 compliant? Who knows.
So, thanks for the help.
