Summary: DHCP

My orginal question was about the availablility of a DHCP server that
can run on a Sun system. I received a few "me-too's" so I thought I
better summarize to the list.

Two commercial products were mentioned. One is the SolarNet product
from Sun. It runs under Solaris and provides a DHCP server, among other
things. Competitive Automation, Inc. (415) 321-4006 sells a DHCP server
for SunOS and Solaris.

Some people recommended the lastest version of bootp. I dug out
version 2.4.0 from
// It
appears to support RFC 1533 but I'm not sure about automatic or dynamic
address allocation. (I have my doubts.)
