Dnsmasq and dhcpclient problem

Server Terminal: Fedora 11
Client Terminal: Opensuse 11.1

I had Dnsmasq server running for a while now and only thing I changed since on the DNS/DHCP server is running fwbuilder script at startup in init. The fwbuilder script is still the same script I have been using since setting up Dnsmasq. The client terminal is having trouble reaching the outside world.


What I can do on the client terminal:
ping Works
host google.com Works
ping Fail

From the server terminal:
ping Works
ssh Works

comp2:~ # route
Kernel IP routing table
Destination     Gateway         Genmask         Flags Metric Ref    Use Iface     *        U     0      0        0 eth0
link-local      *          U     0      0        0 eth0
loopback        *            U     0      0        0 lo
default         netsrv.comp1.lo         UG    0      0        0 eth0
comp2:~ #
In dnsmasq.conf I had set:

I don't know why dhcp-client is setting default router to
default netsrv.comp1.lo UG 0 0 0 eth0

Anyone who has insight to this issue of why it's doing this please, I would appreciate the info/help... Thank You...

The problem was on Server Terminal. ipv4_foward was at 0. I use fwbuilder Firewall script during system boot up, it sets up iptables (Nat,firewall, and ipv4_foward). I don't know why ipv4_foward was still at 0 and i'm investigation the issue.

Problem Solved!!
