rump.dhcpclient -- simple dhcp client for rump kernels
The rump.dhcpclient utility is a very simple DHCP client which can be used to apply network-
ing configuration on one interface in a rump kernel. Unlike full DHCP clients,
rump.dhcpclient does not store leases or renew expired leases. The reason for this is the
typical transient nature of a rump kernel. Additionally, rump.dhcpclient does not save DNS
After having succesfully configured networking, rump.dhcpclient prints out the networking
configuration and lease time and exits.
Since rump.dhcpclient uses bpf(4) to send and receive raw network packets, the server must
include support for bpf and vfs (for opening /dev/bpf). Otherwise, the following diagnostic
message is printed:
rump.dhcpclient: bpf: Function not implemented
There is no easy way to release a lease.
