dhcpd

By TheJazzMan ·
I am new to Linux & I am trying to get dhcp server services functioning. Dhcpd is the tool to use for this as I understand it. RH7 has dhcp, dhcpc & dhcpcd available on the CD. I have installed all three files but have been unable locate the dhcpd.conf file. Where are they hiding this file or am I missing a piece of the puxxle to get this functioning?

don't know exactly where it is, it depends on your setup... but you can hit 'find dhcpd.conf' and it will tell you which dir it's in, i had a problem similar to this when i installed BitchX as 'root' and it dispersed all the files across my drives..

You can use the Linux Configuration program to configure DHCP. It will automatically created the dhcpcd.conf file for you. This is the recommended way. Run "linuxconf" to get the program started. BTW most common .conf files are located in the /etc/ directory.

There is no dhcp.conf file initially configured. There is a sample file in /usr/doc/dhcp-2.0/dhcpd.conf.sample.

Go to http://ctdp.tripod.com/os/linux/usersguide/index.html and read item 45. There are several steps and files required to get DCHPto operate correctly. Follow those steps and you should have no problems.

Initially when you set up DHCP you have a sample dhcpd.conf file created in the /etc directory.if you do not find the file in this directory ,then you can use "find / -name 'dhcpd.conf' -print" to know where it has been installed.for configuring,since you are a novice,it is preferrable that you use linuxconf or netconf.....

If none of the above work, use a text editor and create a file called dhcpd.conf with nothing in it, save it to the /etc directory.
