View Full Version : [kubuntu] Which interface is dhcpd bound to?

March 11th, 2009, 10:03 PM
I installed dhcp3-server package on my machine. I'm configuring it to connected to an embedded device so I have a 2nd NIC and a cross-over cable going to the device.

I ran this:

sudo dpkg-reconfigure dhcp3-server

I answered the interface question with "eth1" which is the interface I want it to look at. I'm 99% sure that it's looking at the right interface, but if I mess up, I'm on a large network and I don't want IS knocking on my door for handing out addresses. Is there a command like a netstat command to tell which services are bound to which interface or do I just have to trust the /etc/defaults/dhcp3-server file?

I'd like to just be able to run a command that will tell me which interface it's using.
