comment Samba shared files owner and group
Ah, I see. The uid and gid are mapped to different users. I didn't know this. I didn't even know that uid and gid existed... But is it possible to change this? Like allowing my client to read/write those files provided the client has the password of course.

Please, read my additional information in the question. Can you confirm the problem is the client speaking bootp instead of DHCP?

The OS is a customised Android. The dhcp client should be included I suppose. But if the driver of the ethernet adapter is somehow responsible for IP address acquisition, then there might be a reason why also on Windows 7 the address cannot be acquired.

Thanks for your answers. Do you know what module is responsible for using bootp instead of dhcp? I suppose the client is something on the OS level, but do you think it is possible that Windows 7 is also using bootp because the driver of the ethernet adapter requests to use bootp? In that case this is a possible explanation of why Windows 7 is not working as well.

Your answer is very interesting, but before marking as the correct answer I would like to ask you how you determined bootp is used instead of dhcp and how do you explain another particular I didn't specify: in the tests, an ethernet USB dongle is used, and the same happens when that dongle is plugged into a Windows 7 machine. No IP is acquired from the network.
