Quoting from the dhcpd manual page...
If dhcpd should listen on a port other than the standard
(port 67), the -p flag may used. It should be followed by
the udp port number on which dhcpd should listen. This is
mostly useful for debugging purposes.
If Ubuntu uses "dhclient" from the ISC, then this section of the
dhclient manual page applies:
If the DHCP client should listen and transmit on a port
other than the standard (port 68), the -p flag may used.
It should be followed by the udp port number that dhclient
should use. This is mostly useful for debugging purposes.
If a different port is specified for the client to listen
on and transmit on, the client will also use a different
destination port - one greater than the specified destina-
If you're using another dhcp client, you should consult the documentation
