Other Uses for DHCP

A whole host of options can be used in dhcpd.conf: Entire books are dedicated to DHCP. The most comprehensive book is The DHCP Handbook, available at www.dhcp-handbook.com/. You can define NIS domains, configure NetBIOS, set subnet masks, and define time servers or many other types of servers (to name a few of the DHCP options you can use). The preceding example gets your DHCP server and client up and running.

The DHCP server distribution contains an example of the dhcpd.conf file that you can use as a template for your network. The file shows a basic configuration that can get you started with explanations for the options used.
