A DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol)
server and relay agent.
DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) is a
protocol which allows individual devices on an IP network to get
their own network configuration information (IP address,
subnetmask, broadcast address, etc.) from a DHCP server. The
overall purpose of DHCP is to make it easier to administer a large
network. The dhcp package includes the ISC DHCP service and relay
agent. To use DHCP on your network, install a DHCP service (or
relay agent), and on clients run a DHCP client daemon. The dhcp
package provides the ISC DHCP service and relay agent.
