I'm running Solaris 7. I do not particularly like the DHCP server that
Sun provides now with Sol7 because, as I understand it, it doesn't allow
me to use the hostnames from /etc/hosts (which I have been using all along).
I also do not like the public domain DHCP server software that I *am*
using because it doesn't really seem to be dynamic in the sense that it
keeps a one-to-one correspondence between the IP address and the
ethernet address. I could be wrong about this since I haven't fully
investigated it even though I've been running CMU's DHCP 3.3.7 for some years.
My wish is to have a DHCP server that hears requests from clients and
upon receiving an ethernet address from the client and matching it to
one in the server's database provides an IP address from a select set of
IP addresses (e.g. 22.214.171.124 through 126.96.36.199).
Thus, a client could have 128.1111.108.100 on one day and
188.8.131.52 on another.
Thanks for any URLs or other help.
