23.2 DHCP Software Packages

Both a DHCP server and DHCP clients are available for openSUSE. The DHCP server available is dhcpd (published by the Internet Systems Consortium). On the client side, choose between two different DHCP client programs: dhcp-client (also from ISC) and the DHCP client daemon in the dhcpcd package.

openSUSE installs dhcpcd by default. The program is very easy to handle and is launched automatically on each system boot to watch for a DHCP server. It does not need a configuration file to do its job and works out of the box in most standard setups. For more complex situations, use the ISC dhcp-client, which is controlled by means of the configuration file /etc/dhclient.conf.
