Thanks to all that answered about this.
First, what is a DHCP server?
DHCP = Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol
It's a daemon program to serve the protocol described in RFC 1531. It's
an extension to the BOOTP protocol that allows you to dynamically supply
a client with some configuration parameters, mainly its IP address.
Because it's possible to assign IP addresses automatically, it's very
usefull to simplify the administration of PCs and other clients like
printers and X-terminals.
First, there are one comercial DHCP server included in the SUN's
package named Solarnet PC-Admin. This product also includes the
following PC client software: TCP/IP, NFS, PPP, NIS and NIS+ support.
There is another commercial DHCP server named JOIN. You can
get more info at email@example.com.
>From the public domain it seems to be two alternatives:
1) bootp with DHCP patches
This alternative was the more recommended.
>From the messages I received, try the following locations:
a) In the ftp server at andrew.cmu.edu
2) A C version of DHCP for SunOS4.1.3 from Japan
>From the REAMDE file include in the mail I received from Timothy J. Perala:
Currently, we confirm operation on BSD/386 1.1, BSD/OS 2.0, NEWS-OS
4.2, SunOS 4.1.3 and FreeBSD 18.104.22.168. Also it will be very easy to
port them to another OS which has bpf (Berkeley Packet Filter).
