Does anyone out there have, or is willing to admit working on, a
"real" DHCP client for NetBSD? I have two candidate uses (both the
obvious wandering laptop, and as a client of CATV-based networks --
continental cablevision's IP-over-CATV system apparently requires the
use of DHCP by its customers).
the dhcp server provided with netbsd also includes a ``(really lame
DHCP client)'' in src/usr.sbin/dhcpd/dhclient. i can't find any
documentation on how to use it, and when i queried ted on whether
it should be installed as part of netbsd, he said "no".
however, it may be useful for what you want. :-)
