I have a question: I would like to run a DHCP server on an iMac
running Leopard 10.5. I have tried building the ISC source code (I
have Developer Tools installed) but it fails with errors.
What are the errors? Everything I've read suggests that OS X is a
known target in the compile configuration. Look out for spaces in
directory paths and suchlike.
have any experience building/running a DHCP server? Are there binaries
somewhere for OS X? I don't want to have to install DarwinPorts.
Darwin ports is probably the best way to do things like this; since
it installs everything in it's own /opt/ directory, so OS X system
upgrades don't stomp on it. Apple's updates have a nasty tendency to
be a process like 'delete the existing /etc directory replace it
with the one from the update'.
I'm not running dhcp on OS X but I am using it to run a mysql dbms
and it works like a charm.
Um, why not just use the dhcp service built-in? That's what the
internet sharing is all about - it adds a couple of routes to the ip
stack and runs dhcp.
If you need something more sophisticated, there's IPNetRouter.
