Question


I went to start the DHCP daemon, after making a DHCP.conf file, It terminated and said a lease file was not present. What info would I put in a lease file?

You need to create an empty file called "dhcpd.leases" (without the quotes). Depending on your distro/dhcpd server/version I have seen the file in 3 places.

/etc/dhcpd.leases
/var/state/dhcp/dhcpd.leases
/var/dhcp/dhcpd.leases

I would probably try them in that order.

Exclamation

Not sure what DHCP client you are running, but this may be of interest to you:
Somebody at OpenBSD discovered a possible root exploit in the ISC DHCP client. This exploit is present in all versions of the ISC DHCP client prior to 2.0pl1 and 3.0b1pl14, which was released on June 24th. Anybody who is using versions of the ISC DHCP client other than these are strongly urged to upgrade.

The ISC DHCP distribution is available at ftp://ftp.isc.org/isc/DHCP,
and anonymous CVS at http://www.isc.org/products/DHCP/anoncvs.html.
The head of the tree in anonymous CVS also contains the fix.
