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
  • The DHCP agent IDs can be defined freely
  • Has a small memory footprint when using dietlibc

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