I'm running a Minix using VirtualBox. Minix is set to use the DHCP. And the network adapter is using a bridged connection*.
When I last saved the state of the machine its IP was 192.168.1.11 (
ifconfig) and was connected to wlan0 (VirtualBox network settings). When I resumed the machine I changed the network adapter to eth0 -- the DHCP on this network* hands-out IP in the range 192.168.0.X-- but the IP that the system is assuming is, for obvious reasons, 192.168.1.11 which of course can't be reached. For say, ssh-ing.
I know Minix conforms with the POSIX standards. But like in Ubuntu (Linux) I couldn't use
service networking restart nor could I find anything under
/etc that could provide a hint. Of course I could use something like
ifconfig -h 192.168.0.10 netmask 255.255.255.0 mtu 1500. But I want to get the IP from the DHCP.
How can I restart (command) the network dev/manager in Minix? (Assuming that way I could get a new IP)
How can I request (command) a new IP from the DHCP?
*please excuse/correct my (if any) technically inaccurate description.
