Description cac 1999-11-03 23:45:11 UTC
linuxconf/Dhcp configuration/one subnet definition

    Network number
    IP range start
    IP range stop

When accept is clicked, linuxconf reports:

  Invalid host IP number

True, this number is an invalid class C address, but it
is a perfectly valid class B address, which is indicated by
the netmask setting.

  Setting the start address to x.x.x.1 and stop address
to x.x.x.254 serve as workarounds.

Comment 1 Riley H Williams 1999-12-16 00:53:59 UTC
It may be a perfectly valid class B address, but it still isn't in the range
you've specified - note your network is *172*.16.* but the address is *176*.16.*

Comment 2 Riley H Williams 1999-12-16 00:55:59 UTC
Somebody can't type - me !!!

Network is 172.16.*
Range is   176.16.*

172 != 176

Does that help?

rhw is right, this is not a bug.  Thanks!
