About the DHCP category


This area is for discussion of DHCP, dynamic host control protocol applications and software.

ISC publishes two DHCP software systems, ISC DHCP and Kea.

  • If you are posting a question about one of these software systems, please indicate which software you are using. We are covering both in the same category because we anticipate a lot of discussion about differences between the two, and migration from ISC DHCP to Kea.

  • Feel free to post your requirements, as well as specific questions or problems. We are always looking for clear use cases for new features!

  • Don’t limit yourself to posting problems. If you have a solution, positive experience or a design that has worked well for you that you think others could benefit from, please consider sharing it.
