isc-dhcp-client 4.1.1-P1-17ubuntu10.1 (i386 binary) in ubuntu oneiric
This is the client from the Internet Software Consortium's implementation of
DHCP. For more information visit http://
Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) is a protocol like BOOTP
(actually dhcpd includes much of the functionality of bootpd). It
gives client machines "leases" for IP addresses and can
automatically set their network configuration. If your machine
depends on DHCP (especially likely if it's a workstation on a large
network, or a laptop, or attached to a cable modem), keep this or
another DHCP client installed.
Extra documentation can be found in the package isc-dhcp-common.
