PIX and 851 reject DHCP

We have a remote site for telemetry and we have been using Wildblue satellite internet , it is a standard DOCSIS modem with ethernet and DHCP.

We have a PIX 501 there and uses DHCP to acquire address, and VPN tunnel back to HQ.

We no longer can aquire ip address from Wildblue, if you connect PC or cheap Linksys router to modem, it will aquire address.

Here is Debug from PIX

DHCP: SDiscover: sending 278 byte length DHCP packet

Re: PIX and 851 reject DHCP

Does your provider use PPPoE. If so, you will need to setup your PIX/851 to authenticate to their network. Please see the links below.

Hope this helps.

Re: PIX and 851 reject DHCP

No my provider does not use pppoe, it is DHCP

Re: PIX and 851 reject DHCP

Hello,

try and power everyting off for about 10 minutes (modem/PIX/router), then power everything on again. The problem is likely with WildBlue, have you had a chance to talk to them already ?

Re: PIX and 851 reject DHCP

Yes I have tried doing that already, even for hours, and also tried leaving pix on, and see if it aquires address after being on for a while, and still no go. It does appear the problem is on Wildblue, but don't understand why the PIX is picky.

Trying to talk to someone at wildblue that has a clue seems impossible.

Re: PIX and 851 reject DHCP

You can use PPPoE and DHCP together. I have a site with a DSL connection where the provider uses PPPoE. My router pulls an address through DHCP. By default, your modem performs the PPPoE negotiation, but this would not work with the 2821 router that I use. I ended up having to put the modem in bridge mode (you should be able to get info on the steps from the modem manufacturer) and let the 2821 perform the PPPoE.

Hope this helps.

Re: PIX and 851 reject DHCP

Hello Jason,

doesn´t WildBlue use MAC address verification ? I don´t think the PIX has support for MAC address cloning, but you could try and configure:

mac-address-table static interface_name mac_address

using the MAC address of the PC or the Linksys router that work and do get an IP address.

I am thinking that WildBlue should at least be able to verify which MAC address is registered with them...but from what you are saying, that appears to be a problem...

Regards,

GNT
