The standard /etc/dhcp3/dhcpd.conf was there, as was
/etc/default/dhcpd3-server . The 'default' script had an INTERFACES=
line, as did the dhcpd.conf, and the one in the 'default' script was
taking precedent somehow. That was the only info in that script, so I
just deleted it and took out the reference to it in
Is it possible in future versions to put some kind of syslog output
that says what interfaces dhcpd is listening on? If I had seen output
like that, I would have known what to look for. . . as it was there
was no sign that that was anything wrong with the configs until
Simon's comment. . .
