Testing the DHCP Server

If you wish to test a dhcp server offline, and you are a perl person,
you might find the following perl modules useful:
Both provide minimal dhcp clients for testing.
I have tried both; I use a modified version of Net::DHCPClientLive
because it acts like a real client, handling renewals and so on
However, I've also had to make changes to it to support some types of
options not supported already.
If you are not already an experienced perl user, you won't want to try
these clients. They are not really plug-and-play.
These are probably only useful if, like myself, you deploy many dhcp
based systems in different environments, need to test patches or new
I hope this is useful.
