Ahcpd is an implementation of the Ad-Hoc Configuration Protocol (AHCP), a configuration protocol designed for networks where DHCP doesn't work, such as wireless mesh networks.
|Operating Systems||Mac OS X POSIX Linux BSD OpenBSD|
Release Notes: This version fixes a bug that could cause a client to immediately deconfigure itself after successfully renewing a lease.
Release Notes: Ported to OpenBSD and Mac OS X.
Release Notes: Servers are now configured using a human-readable configuration file rather than command-line options. Both client- and server-side server selection was implemented. Preliminary support for prefix delegation was added.
Release Notes: The AHCP protocol has been completely redesigned from scratch. The old protocol is no longer supported.
Release Notes: This release will survive interfaces going up or down or being dynamically created or deleted, which makes it easier to integrate with VPNs. It has the ability to run as a daemon, which simplifies the writing of init scripts.
