    Sounds like your DHCP is having issues and not leasing out any addresses. Linux is looking for a dhcp server to get its ip address and it sounds like it cant find one. I'd check out your DHCP server or at least see if it is even started (service dhcpd status)

    Ahhh Ha!

    Finally..... I messed around a lot with IP addresses and netmasks, and finally got the local group communicating. Also, I have the cluster communicating with the LAN which I had all along. Additionally after changing the Internet to DHCP and using a router I got that to work too. I think the main problem that I have been having was what you were saying, an issue with DHCP licensing or netmask on the static connection. I would like to get the static connection working the way it was but DHCP works too I guess but now I just can't ssh into the computer from outside the LAN. No big deal I suppose.

    If all of your other computers are set up to static but the one you switched to DHCP you can still ssh to it, it just takes one other thing to obtain its IP at that time. You can do a ping -b xxx.xxx.xxx.255 or 254 I cant remember. Then you can see which IP address you dont recognize and then ssh to that address or you can resolve the hostname of the computer and get your DNS setup correctly then just type in ssh root@<name of computer> (ie: ssh root@test or ssh root@192.168.0.24) Hope this helps and congrats on fixing your issue, took you a while and I'm glad to see you finally figured it out.

    Yes, Thank you VERY much for your help!! If I have any more questions I'll ask you if I think of them.

    The problem was that I never set this whole thing up and I don't know linux that well. But eventually by I figured it out by dumb luck.

    BTW printk is a function for printing to the screen in Linux programming with C. Probably doesn't help you in any way, but it could impress people.
