Projects / dhcpcd-dbus


dhcpcd-dbus receives interface configuration events from the dhcpcd control socket and emits them to the DBus listeners. It also has methods to release, rebind, stop, and query dhcpcd on an interface. This allows users to control dhcpcd to some extent, as all dhcpcd operations require root privileges, and DBus has a fine-grained ACL list for accessing these functions which dhcpcd-dbus can optionally use. dhcpcd-dbus can also talk to wpa_supplicant via its control socket and expose a minimal interface.
