Solaris DHCP Client
The term “client” is sometimes used to refer to a physical machine that
is performing a client role on the network. However, the DHCP client described
in this document is a software entity. The Solaris DHCP client is a
daemon (dhcpagent) that runs in the Solaris OS on a system that is
configured to receive its network configuration from a DHCP server. DHCP clients from
other vendors can also use the services of the Solaris DHCP server. However,
this document describes only the Solaris DHCP client.
See Chapter 16, Configuring and Administering DHCP Clients for detailed information about the Solaris DHCP client.
