Name        : dhcp
Product     : Fedora 16
Version     : 4.2.2
Release     : 5.fc16
URL         : http://isc.org/products/DHCP/
Summary     : Dynamic host configuration protocol software
Description :
DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) is a protocol which allows
individual devices on an IP network to get their own network
configuration information (IP address, subnetmask, broadcast address,
etc.) from a DHCP server. The overall purpose of DHCP is to make it
easier to administer a large network.  The dhcp package includes the
ISC DHCP service and relay agent.

To use DHCP on your network, install a DHCP service (or relay agent),
and on clients run a DHCP client daemon.  The dhcp package provides
the ISC DHCP service and relay agent.

Update Information:

Update of the BIND to the 9.8.1 bugfix release, dnsperf, dhcp and bind-dyndb-ldap were rebuilt.
