Running DHCP client manually

dhclient: Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol Client


dhclient eth0

I have to put above in init.d to make it run at startup. In my system something was screwed and eth0 was not getting the IP address.

dhclient is also used for renewing IP address


dhclient -r && dhclient
