How to turn off dhcp service on server?
Can someone tell me how to turn OFF the DHCP services on a Linux server? I have been looking all over the internet and some Linux books but I can't figure out how to kill this !*&$! service!
I know the service is running on the server on our network, because when I do an ipconfig /all from a workstation it shows the DHCP and DNS server as being the IP address of the Linux server.
Here's an overview of what I have tried:
I am not too sure of the Linux version, but it does have the RedHat graphical interface.
I have gone into Applications-->Server Settings-->Services, as I believe this shows the currently running services (?) I cannot see anything related to dhcp, such as dhcpd.
I have tried the command "/sbin/service dhcpd stop" from the command prompt, but all I get back is: "dhcpd: unrecognized service"
I noticed there is a dhcpd command in the /usr/sbin directory, however the command still produces the same result.
Would really appreciated any advice I can get on this. I have dabbled some in Linux but for the life of me this has me stumped! Thanks in advance for any advice!
