Open DHCP Server is an Open Source multi-subnet DHCP Server that supports dynamic, static leases, relay agents, BOOTP, PXEBOOT, as well as global, range, and client-specific options.
A DHCP server can help make network configuration more simple since any newly connected device does not need an admin to set up an IP address. This command-line utility operates by storing client IP addresses in a database. You can set up database policy as well as a dedicated configuration file. This set up will permit you to specify the network interface the server should be listening to, change the HTTP interface, activate or deactivate event logging, and more.
Additionally, two instances of Open DHCP Server can be installed, which work in load shared fail-safe mode. If one DHCP Server goes down, the other can still renew the leases issued by the failed server. The Databases of both servers will remain in sync, and there should never be any duplicate leases.
