will this run under dsl?

Documentation is sparce but the sourceforge project page says will run under:

All POSIX (Linux/BSD/UNIX-like OSes)
Does dsl fit that description? (Sorry, recent MS Win refugee here.)

I have the Win version running on XP and would like to try it also on linux / dsl but cannot figure out how to make it go. It runs as a service under XP, how do I do similar in linux ?

Yes, DSL fits that description.

Getting it to work properly will be up to you. Is it in the apt-get repository or will you have to compile it from source?

There is a dhcp server in the Testing section of the MyDSL repository called Curaga. That might serve your needs.

See it here:

Curaga appears to be a user name for the submitter of the dhcp server.

Dual server is nice as it links dhcp and dns together so that as hosts are supplied an Ip they also get registered in the dns. This allows dynamic updates of the dns so you can call machines by name on your lan even dhcp ones with no upkeep by humans.

I don't see any mention of this in the Curaga submission.

Thanks though.

BTW, when I attemp to run the dualserver executeable, I get the following:

./dualserver: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Are these libraries available somewhere, they didn't jump out at me when I went looking in the mydsl.

Thanks again,

Brian H.

Dnsmasq does something similar (and is easy to get going), in case that helps.

Looks tempting but it needs compiling, which is beyond me as yet.
