When you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth —Sherlock Holmes This stands particularly true with networking. I had an issue with our home network tonight and a rogue machine. I eliminated every option (including a stranger on our open AP) — with no avail. The rogue machine — the debian server I was using was that rogue IP. It had swapped mysteriously from static to DHCP — I’m not exactly sure how… but it did. (include is the offending section from /var/log/daemon.log). Strange!
