This is an alpha test snapshot of Version 3 of the Internet Software

includes a DHCP server, a DHCP client, and a BOOTP/DHCP relay agent.

SOLARIS
One problem which has been observed and is not fixed in this patchlevel
has to do with using DLPI on Solaris 2.6 machines, probably only on Intel,
but possibly also on SPARC. The symptom of this problem is that you never
receive any DHCP packets. If you are running Solaris 2.6, and you
encounter this symptom, and you are running the DHCP server on a machine
with a single broadcast network interface, you may wish to edit the
includes/site.h file and uncomment the #define USE_SOCKETS line. Then
type ``make clean; make''.
One problem which has been observed and is not fixed in this

If you are using Solaris 2.6, and you encounter this symptom, and

network interface, you may wish to edit the includes/site.h file and

The DHCP client on Solaris will only work with DLPI. If you run it
and it just keeps saying it's sending DHCPREQUEST packets, but never
gets a response, you may be having DLPI trouble as described above.
If so, you are SOL. Also, because Solaris requires you to "plumb" an
interface before it can be detected by the DHCP client, you must
either specify the name(s) of the interface(s) you want to configure
on the command line, or must plumb the interfaces prior to invoking
the DHCP client. This can be done with ``ifconfig iface plumb'',
where iface is the name of the interface (e.g., ``ifconfig hme0
plumb'').
It should be noted that Solaris versions from 2.6 onward include a
DHCP client that you can run with ``/sbin/ifconfig iface dhcp start''
rather than using the ISC DHCP client. The feature set of the Solaris
client is different (not necessarily better or worse) than that of the
ISC client, but in most cases it will be a lot easier for you to just
use that. Please do not ask for help in using the Solaris DHCP client
on Internet Software Consortium mailing lists - that's why you're
paying Sun the big bucks. If you're having a problem with the
Solaris client interoperating with the ISC dhcp server, that's another
matter, but please check with Sun first.
