ISC DHCP server for automatic IP address assignment

This is the Internet Software Consortium's DHCP server. Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) is a protocol like BOOTP (actually dhcpd includes much of the functionality of bootpd). It gives client machines "leases" for IP addresses and can automatically set their network configuration. This server can handle multiple ethernet interfaces.

common manpages relevant to all of the isc-dhcp packages

This package includes manpages that are relevant to the various ISC DHCP packages. The dhcp-options manpage describes available options for dhcpd and dhclient. The dhcp-eval manpage describes evaluation of conditional expressions.


DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) is a protocol which

allows individual devices on an IP network to get their own network configuration information (IP address, subnetmask, broadcast address, etc.) from a DHCP server. The overall purpose of DHCP is to make it easier to administer a large network. The dhcp package includes the ISC DHCP service and relay agent. To use DHCP on your network, install a DHCP service (or relay agent), and on clients run a DHCP client daemon. The dhcp package provides the ISC DHCP service and relay agent.
