Installing a DHCP server on Debian Woody

To attribute automagically IP configurations to a network of computers, you have to install a DHCP [1] server.

Install the package:
# apt-get install dhcp
Add the network interface name on which the DHCP server should reply on the INTERFACES="" line in /etc/default/dhcp. Ex.:
INTERFACES="eth1"

Configure the /etc/dhcpd.conf file.

Start the DHCP server:
# /etc/init.d/dhcp start
