Description Tom Horsley 2013-06-13 18:03:55 UTC
Description of problem:

I'm running a local access point for my phone and tablet on a local subnet. I want the dhcpd I'm running to only listen on the wlan0 (or what used to be named wlan0 anyway) interface.

Apparently there is no way to specify an interface restriction in the .conf file, but I have to specify it on the command line.

Seems to be like the unit file ought to append the tradition /etc/sysconfig/dhcpd command line arguments if that file exists.

Alternately (and perhaps more sensibly) the .conf file should have some syntax to allow me to say exactly which interface to listen on.


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
dhcp-4.2.5-12.fc19.x86_64


How reproducible:
100%

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Look at unit file, see you can't add command line args conveniently
2.
3.

Actual results:
No way to add command line args

Expected results:
Way to add command line arg

There is actually, see bug #909733, comment #7

Discussed in bug #909733 several times, I haven't changed my mind since then.
