I try to run the example "Nios II Ethernet Simple Socket Serveron MAX 10 FPGA Development Kit". However, instead of "Acquired IP address via DHCP client for interface: et1¨ in step 7 of the manual I get after some time "DHCP timed out, going back to default IP address(es)" How can I 1) make DHCP not time out, or 2) discover what the "default IP address" is? Thanks in advance for answering.
As a first step, use an Ethernet analysis tool to verify your packets are correct. Wireshark is good. I like to use it in a bridge configuration between the device and the network. See the Wireshark documentation for details on how to set up a bridge.
Thanks for your help. I finally solved the problem as follows:- Disabling DHCP in the BSP - Giving the PC a fixed IP address I do not know why this works, although I can imagine that things get less complicated due to these measures. At least now it is fun to follow the simple communication with Wireshark.
