Product : Fedora Core 3
Name : dhcp
Version : 3.0.1
Release : 42_FC3
Summary : A DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) server and relay agent.
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.
o dhclient-script no longer automatically honors $GATEWAY setting
if present in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-* files, but
requires that the DHCLIENT_USE_GATEWAY variable also be set.
