It would be nice if this was released as source instead of a rpm. Need to realize that not everyone uses redhat.
I had a problem with the dhcp.conf file that was located at /dhcp-3.0b1pl13/server/dhcpd.conf The sample file has the following line
option name-servers bb.home.vix.com, gw.home.vix.com;
which I believe should read
option domain-name-servers bb.home.vix.com, gw.home.vix.com;
Version 2.0 is out!
I mention this because a previous comment says it's coming soon, but in fact it's here! :')
Why use this one?
This package contains both a client AND a server in case you didn't notice, and the client is the most flexible and configurable implementation around from what I can see. A major benefit is this program has an external shell script that gets called every time the lease is modified somehow, which should be perfect for people trying to maintain updated DNS information (like WINS integration, or roaming DNS services), since you can edit it to your heart's content. It's client also has no "issues" with NT DHCP server implementations, unlike another implementation I could name.
An open, cross-platform journaling program.
A scientific plotting package.
