Dialog box appears:

options for isc-dhcp41-server 4.1.1.p1,1

[X] DHCP_PARANOIA Enable support for chroot

Configuration: /usr/local/etc/dhcpd.conf

**** This port installs dhcp daemon, but doesn't invoke dhcpd by default. If

you want to invoke dhcpd at startup, put these lines into /etc/rc.conf.

dhcpd_enable="YES" # dhcpd enabled?

dhcpd_flags="-q" # command option(s)

dhcpd_conf="/usr/local/etc/dhcpd.conf" # configuration file

dhcpd_ifaces="" # ethernet interface(s)

dhcpd_withumask="022" # file creation mask

**** If compiled with paranoia support (the default), the following lines

are also supported:

dhcpd_chuser_enable="YES" # runs w/o privileges?

dhcpd_withuser="dhcpd" # user name to run as

dhcpd_withgroup="dhcpd" # group name to run as

dhcpd_chroot_enable="YES" # runs chrooted?

dhcpd_devfs_enable="YES" # use devfs if available?

dhcpd_rootdir="/var/db/dhcpd" # directory to run in

dhcpd_includedir="<some_dir>" # directory with config-

files to include

**** WARNING: never edit the chrooted or jailed dhcpd.conf file but

/usr/local/etc/dhcpd.conf instead which is always copied where

needed upon startup.

**** WARNING: /usr/local/etc/rc.isc-dhcpd.conf is obsolete. rc.conf like

variables are no longer read from there. Also, the dhcpd_options

variable is obsolete. Use dhcpd_flags instead.
