#4313 DHCP Server version 4 wrong parameters on config module


Hi Jamie,

I saw some bugs reported with an error in the config module for the DHCP Server. I suposse you've changed this settings in newer versions, but the fact is DHCP Server config parameters are still wrong for the version 4.

If it helps, now I give you the right options, they should be changed from these:

To these ones:

Can you please fix it in the next version? Thanks a lot!



OS version: Ubuntu 12.04.3
DHCP Server package version installed: isc-dhcp-server 4.1.ESV-R4-0ubuntu5.9

    Does Ubuntu 12.04 install DHCPd version 4 by default? The default config parameters in Webmin are written to match the standard version of DHCPd that the distro supplies.

    Hi again,

    Ubuntu doesn't install any server by default. However, DHCPd default package for newer Ubuntu editions is DHCPd v4, as you can check out on Ubuntu official page documentation:


    On this page you can see this note: "newer Ubuntu editions use another name for this package (isc-dhcp-server) and the configuration is slightly different. See the page isc-dhcp-server"

    And this is the page isc-dchp-server:


    where you can see this: "note: this package was in the past called dhcp3-server"

    Kind regards!

    Thanks for the info. So what is the package name (or meta-package name) for DHCPd version 4?

    Never mind, I found the cause ... this will be fixed in the next Webmin release.
