NAME

       dhcpdump - DHCP packet dumper

SYNOPSIS

       dhcpdump [-h regular-expression] -i interface

DESCRIPTION

       This command parses the output of tcpdump to display the dhcp-packets
       for easier checking and debugging.

USAGE

       dhcpdump -i /dev/fxp0

       If you want to filter a specific Client Hardware Address (CHADDR), then
       you can specifiy it as a regular expressions:

       dhcpdump -i /dev/fxp0 -h ^00:c0:4f

       This will display only the packets with Client Hardware Addresses which
       start with 00:c0:4f.

NOTES

       Privileged access is often needed for accessing the interface.

BUGS

       Not all the parameter options are printed verbose, because of lack of
       documentation. Not all the options are tested, because of lack of
       clients/servers with these options. If you have a dump of one of them,
       please send them to me and I'll incorperate them.
