DHCP Server address

Where can you find your DHCP Server address? I checked all of the files that this mentioned with no luck.

What is your system? What is your DHCP daemon? What exactly are you trying to do?

Fedora,

Not sure. How do I check it?

Nothing. I just want to check what it is.

If you don't know what your dhcp server daemon is, you quite probably don't have one. I think you're getting server and client mixed up. That tutorial you link is for configuring something to be a DHCP server, nothing to do with what your computer received from a DHCP server.

Then what is the fedora equivalent to this? I was able to get that information from this file in Linux Mint and Ubuntu.

Code:
/var/lib/dhcp3/dhclient.leases

Oh, I see. Now that we're not completely in the dark about what you want, how about /var/lib/dhcp?
