Hi Jakob

A little more information would help here: what operating system, what
OS version, what version of dhcpd ( dhcpd --version ). Is this dhcpd
distributed with the OS, or did you download and compile yourself? Your
dhcpd.conf file, or a reasonable sample if there are many repeated
subnets for example.

dhcpd does not, by itself, listen on port 8443. Although it may do this
if you configure it to use that port.  Places to look could be omapi or
failover settings.
