dhcp (net/dhcp) Add to my watchlist

ISC dhcpd server

ISC's Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol Distribution reference implementation of all aspects of the DHCP protocol, through a suite of DHCP tools: A DHCP server, client, and relay agent. These tools all use a modular API which is designed to be sufficently general that can easily be made to work on POSIX- compliant operating systems and also non-POSIX systems like Windows NT and Mac OS. The DHCP server, client and relay agent are provided both as reference implementations of the protocol and as working, fully-features sample implementations. Both the client and the server provide functionality that, while not strictly required by the protocol, is very useful in practice. The DHCP server also makes allowance for non-compliant clients which one might still like to support.

Port notes

The dhcpd .conf and .leases files must be named and located as shown for dhcpd to find them:
${prefix}/etc/dhcp/dhcpd.conf (there is a sample file)
${prefix}/var/db/dhcpd/dhcpd.leases (use the touch command to create a blank one) A startup item has been generated that will aid in starting dhcp with launchd. It is disabled by default. Execute the following command to start it, and to cause it to launch at startup:

sudo port load dhcp
