Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 6321
DHCP should have a 'route' added at startup
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:52 EDT
This is not really a bug, but since a lot of people will
have their linux box running dhcp for a combination of
Windows an other OS's, this is what I would purpose.
Can you ask at the end of the installation or when you do an
install of dhcp for which ethernet device you are going to
run the dhcp server. This could add 2 things to the startup
you could have these changes in start:
daemon /usr/sbin/dhcpd <ethx>
route add -host 255.255.255.255 dev <ethx>
And in stop:
route del -host 255.255.255.255 dev <ethx>
Just a suggestion...
We've asked TCP/IP folks about this, and as this is only needed for old, buggy
TCP stacks the consensus was that this would not be a good idea.
