Now I got a clue. I've copied the file dhcpd.conf, but forgot to
configure /etc/init.d/dhcp to make dhcpd actually start at boottime.
As detailed therein, I've set run_dhcpd = 1 and executed:
But it fails complaining that I must describe _all_ subnets in
/etc/dhcpd.conf. But, hey, I don't want dhcpd to serve request coming
from eth1 !!
Reading again /etc/init.d/dhcp I see the following:
# Add all interfaces you want dhcpd to handle here
My best guess is: since I haven't added interfaces there, the
script/daemon assumes 'all', and since the subnet correspoding to eth1
is not described in /etc/dhcpd.conf, it complains it should be.
Am I right ?? I haven't tried adding what interfaces I want dhcpd to
handle since I don't know what is the proper syntax (there is no
example in /etc/init.d/dhcp).
Thanks again !!
