/var/log/messages: dhcpd: DHCPINFORM from 109.10.x.x

Hi,
in my /var/log/messages, some things like this always appears:
dhcpd: DHCPINFORM from 109.10.x.x

my server is running dhcpd, I'd like to know what these messages mean and how can I stop them?

Best Regards

What distribution(Redhat, Caldera, Corel..) are you using. It may just be part of the negotiation process between server and client. On mine I get:
DHCPDISCOVER, DHCPOFFER, DHCPREQUEST, DHCPACK, all of which are normal. I haven't seen DHCPINFORM on my Redhat system...In general, if you want to turn off logging of a certain daemon, you can edit the /etc/syslog.conf file. You can be very specific in what you want to omit from this log file.
