Hi All

It seems to me that there is a bug in the freifunk firewall preventing
vista clients from optaining a dhcp lease (ok, ok, actually the
behavior of vista is to be considered buggy but its easier to fix

Apparently there is a rule in fff which blocks dhcp-broadcast replies.
Because Vista is configured to set the BROADCAST-Flag for requests by
default only those clients suffer from the problem. Refer to the
following trac ticket for more information, links and a syslog excerpt.



@Sven-Ola: Weisst du vielleicht gerade welche rule die Broadcasts vom
dnsmasq zurück an den client schluckt? Es scheint so dass nur das
LAN-Interface betroffen ist.

@Nosy: Ich erreiche weder wlanware at freifunk.net noch
wlanware-owner at freifunk.net:<wlanware at freifunk.net>:_Recipient_address_rejected:_Access_denied/Giving_up_on_195.234.229.105./
