DHCP Daemon Status
« on: May 31, 2014, 09:38:15 AM »
Hello,

I've just recently setup a DHCP server. All working and fine.

From what I understand, the only sort of status is the interpretation of the lease file. Unfortunately, this is a little thin and I would like to obtain the IP addresses of the computers connected.

I found 'omshell', which is not in busybox, nor anywhere else. I found it in ISC-DHCP, which is not in the 5.x repo, but in earlier versions.

Is it intended to add it to the current repo? If not, would it work in 5.x? The latest version I found is 4.2.1.

Regards

Carsten

You could try the isc-dhcp extension from the 4.x repo with tc-5.x.

If it works it can be copied to the 5.x repo.

What is wrong with 4.2.5-P1 in 5.x repo already in since November 2013???

Great. But you did not tell which one.

Hi bmarkus,

well, there is nothing like isc-... in the current repo. (?)  Didn't find anything. Has the name been changed?

The dhcp daemon I've installed is the busybox one, version 1.21.1. As I said, it is doing its job, but status information is a bit thin.


@gerald_clark

Thanks for your recommendation, might have a look at it, if I can't get the ISC version running.


Regards

Carsten

Thanks bmarkus!

The 'provide' function looking for 'omshell' did the job. The file name has changed and, from what I saw, the package is much slimmer than the ISC one. Thanks!
