This report summarizes the tools we used to enable a locally controlled DHCP service for temporary hosts inside Swinburne's Centre for Advanced Internet Architectures (CAIA). This report is primarily for internal archival purposes. Initially the CAIA network used statically assigned IP addresses on our LAN segment. As the number of independent and/or temporary boxes flourished we've installed a dhcp server service to automagically hand-out temporary IP addresses from a small pool. The setup is relatively painless and simple, using software from the Internet Software Consortium (ISC) that is conveniently available as a pre-compiled binary "package" for the FreeBSD environment we use here at CAIA.
