I'm pretty sure it would be the router. I don't recall setting up DHCP on the server at all. Server, Mac, and router all use static ip's. And the router handles dhcp for wifi.
Will do that when I get home. What's rip?
I have a client that has installed a bunch of headless servers running Ubuntu 12.04 and 10.04 and the problem he is having is that every so often they lose Ethernet connection and don't re up as they should. Headless so reboot required.
Frankly I am not yet sure why the problem exists. The short term fix was a cron job that checks for internet connection every 5 minutes and does an ifup if it has failed.
You have fixed IP addresses, I don't, so it would be easy to just write a little script to ping the Mac and if it fails to get a return then ifup.
