DHCP Lease Query in PHP is a PHP class that will allow you to send DHCPLEASEQUERY packets to inquire about known leases from a remote DHCP server. It is similar in nature to ISC's OMAPI but without the hangs it creates, nor does it cause dhcpd to behave in a single-threaded fashion while talking to it. After all, it emulates an actual DHCP "helper" (relay agent) and, as such, all queries travel over IP. It is based on RFCs related to DHCP and follows the RFCs as closely as possible.
iPXE is a network boot firmware. It provides a full PXE implementation enhanced with additional features such as the ability to boot from a Web server using HTTP, and the ability to boot from a SAN using iSCSI, AoE, SRP, or FCoE. It supports a wide variety of network devices, including wireless and Infiniband networks. iPXE is an effective replacement for gPXE.

VDE (Virtual Distributed Ethernet) is an Ethernet compliant virtual network that can be spawned over a set of physical computers over the Internet. VDE is part of the virtualsquare project. VDE includes tools such as "vde_switch" and "vdeqemu". vde_switch provides several virtual ports where virtual machines, applications, virtual interfaces, and connectivity tools can be virtually plugged in. vdeqemu works as a wrapper for running qemu virtual machines that connect transparently to a specified vde_switch. VDE is also supported by qemu-kvm (KVM, Linux Kernel Virtual Machine) in versions 0.12.4 and later using the -net vde command-line option.
