I have a Netware server and I think it is providing DHCP services. It shouldn't be and it's not assigning IP addresses to anyone, but when I shut down the server it says that it is also shutting down DHCP services. Where do I check to see if DHCP is enabled or disabled? I would like to turn it off.
