DHCP Server/CLient


Hi

Quick question
I am running MDK10.0 with a wireless connection using the acx100 driver onto a linksys router. DHCP is enabled on the router.

Do I need to run a dhcp server on my linux box or do just need to run a dhcp client?

Cheers

Brinkster

The router has an embedded DHCP Server, so you'll only need the client running on your Linux box.

cheers.

If you're using suse9.x you may encounter problems... (choose DCHP options during install or try to add them using Yast).
Shouldn't have any probs with other distros or win
