20090813 dhcp-3.1.2p1 [VL6.0]
« on: August 13, 2009, 02:00:01 am »

rbistolfi has built a new Dhcp package for VectorLinux 6.0.
Code: [Select]
dhcp: dhcp (DHCP server and client utilities)
dhcp: This package provides the ISC's DHCP utilities, including both a
dhcp: server and client.  The DHCP protocol allows a host to contact a
dhcp: central server which maintains a list of IP addresses which may be
dhcp: assigned on one or more subnets.   A DHCP client may request an
dhcp: address from this pool, and then use it temporarily for communication
dhcp: on the network.   The DHCP protocol also provides a mechanism whereby
dhcp: a client can learn important details about the network to which it is
dhcp: attached, such as the location of a default router or name server.
   After testing this package please stop back here and let us know how it works for you.
