A freely redistributable reference implementation of all aspects of DHCP.
Version: 4.1.0ISC DHCP provides a freely redistributable reference implementation of all aspects of DHCP, through a suite of DHCP tools:
License: BSD License
Operating System: Linux
- A DHCP server
- A DHCP client
- A DHCP relay agent
These tools all use a modular API which is designed to be sufficiently general that it can easily be made to work on POSIX-compliant operating systems and also non-POSIX systems like Windows NT and MacOS.
The DHCP server, client and relay agent are provided both as reference implementations of the protocol and as working, fully-featured sample implementations.
Both the client and the server provide functionality that, while not strictly required by the protocol, is very useful in practice. DHCP server also makes allowances for non-compliant clients which one might still like to support.
