Applications needs to be restared after new IP from DHCP

Reported by: deejam Owned by: axeld

Platform: All


When a new IP address has been issued by a DHCP server, the running applications lose their network connectivity and needs to be restarted. Ping is not affected. WebPositive, wget, Visions etc are affected.

How to reproduce:

  • Connect to a DHCP server that issues a new IP on DHCP_RELEASE/DHCP_DISCOVER (DD-WRT v24-sp2 does that).
  • Launch WebPositive and load a web page.
  • Unplug network cable.
  • Plug network cable.
  • Check syslog and make sure that you got a different IP address.
  • Reload the web page in WebPositive (won't load).
  • Restart WebPositive. Load a web page (will load).

Expected behaviour:

WebPositive should be able to load web pages after a new IP address has been obtained without being restarted.

See #7380 for a description of the problem and log files.

See #7346 for the reason why a new DHCP address is obtained.

I am another victim... At some point, Web+ stops loading websites.

Check syslog and make sure that you got a different IP address - I have static IP.

This is hrev45385 gcc2h.
