RUMP.DHCPCLIENT(1)          General Commands Manual         RUMP.DHCPCLIENT(1)

NAME
     rump.dhcpclient -- simple dhcp client for rump kernels

SYNOPSIS
     rump.dhcpclient ifname

DESCRIPTION
     The rump.dhcpclient utility is a very simple DHCP client which can be
     used to apply networking configuration on one interface in a rump kernel.
     Unlike full DHCP clients, rump.dhcpclient does not store leases or renew
     expired leases.  The reason for this is the typical transient nature of a
     rump kernel.  Additionally, rump.dhcpclient does not save DNS resolver
     information.

     After having succesfully configured networking, rump.dhcpclient prints
     out the networking configuration and lease time and exits.

     Since rump.dhcpclient uses bpf(4) to send and receive raw network
     packets, the server must include support for bpf and vfs (for opening
     /dev/bpf).  Otherwise, the following diagnostic message is printed:

           rump.dhcpclient: bpf: Function not implemented

SEE ALSO
     rump_server(1), bpf(4)

CAVEATS
     There is no easy way to release a lease.
