This project is not part of the GNU Project.

This program forwards DHCP messages between subnets with different sublayer broadcast domains. It is similarly to the DHCP relay agent dhcrelay of ISC's DHCP, but has the following additional features:

  • Runs as non-root in a chroot-jail
  • Uses "normal" AF_INET sockets; this allows to use packetfilters to filter incoming messages

  • Has a small memory footprint when using dietlibc

It is licensed under the terms of the GNU General Public License (GPL), version 3.
