These instructions show how to install and configure a DHCP Server on a Linux System.
1. Install the DHCP Service..
sudo apt-get install dhcp3-server
2. Edit the DHCP Leases file (see below)..
sudo vi /etc/dhcp3/dhcpd.conf
3. After saving the file, restart the DHCP Service..
sudo /etc/init.d/dhcp3-server restart
For setting up a Linux-based DHCP Server including an example dhcpd.conf file, see Configuring the DHCP Service. Apart from the above instructions, dhcpd on Linux works the same as on FreeBSD.
Note these instructions refer to the FreeBSD DHCP Server and may require some modification for ISC DHCP running on Linux.
