kea-dhcp4 - DHCPv4 server in Kea
kea-dhcp4 [-v] [-V] [-W] [-d] [-c config-file] [-t config-file] [-p server-port-number] [-P client-port-number]
The kea-dhcp4 daemon provides the DHCPv4 server implementation.
The arguments are as follows: -v Displays the version. -V Displays the extended version. -W Displays the configuration report. -d Enables the debug mode with extra verbosity. -c config-file Specifies the configuration file with the configuration for the DHCPv4 server. It may also contain configuration entries for other Kea services. -t config-file Checks the configuration file and reports the first error, if any. Note that not all parameters are completely checked; in particular, service and control channel sockets are not opened, and hook libraries are not loaded. -p server-port-number Specifies the server port number (1-65535) on which the server listens. This is useful for testing purposes only. -P client-port-number Specifies the client port number (1-65535) to which the server responds. This is useful for testing purposes only.
Kea comes with an extensive Kea Administrator Reference Manual that covers all aspects of running the Kea software - compilation, installation, configuration, configuration examples, and much more. Kea also features a Kea Messages Manual, which lists all possible messages Kea can print with a brief description for each of them. Both documents are available in various formats (.txt, .html, .pdf) with the Kea distribution. The Kea documentation is available at https://kea.readthedocs.io. Kea source code is documented in the Kea Developer's Guide, available at https://reports.kea.isc.org/dev_guide/. The Kea project website is available at https://kea.isc.org.
MAILING LISTS AND SUPPORT
There are two public mailing lists available for the Kea project. kea-users (kea-users at lists.isc.org) is intended for Kea users, while kea-dev (kea-dev at lists.isc.org) is intended for Kea developers, prospective contributors, and other advanced users. Both lists are available at https://lists.isc.org. The community provides best-effort support on both of those lists. ISC provides professional support for Kea services. See https://www.isc.org/kea/ for details.
The b10-dhcp4 daemon was first coded in November 2011 by Tomek Mrugalski. In mid-2014, Kea was decoupled from the BIND 10 framework and became a standalone DHCP server. The DHCPv4 server binary was renamed to kea-dhcp4. Kea 1.0.0 was released in December 2015.
