Did you configure the dhcpd.conf file?

I think i forgot to set IP to the DHCP server it self, thats why got this

Code:
Not configured to listen on any interfaces!
After i assign IP to my DHCP server, everything solve
I hope this problem is because of didnt set IP to the DHCP server it self.

Anyone face this problem also? Please give comment

at the bottom of the file you need
DHCPDARGS=eth0 or whichever NIC DHCPD is running.

On redhat systems there is a text file /etc/sysconfig/dhcpd

You can use this file instead of putting at the bottom of dhcpd.conf
