I want to replace a windows server with a linux server. the only role of this windows server is to hand out IP addresses via its DHCP Server when someone connects to our Public Wifi network in the DMZ.
Any Linux Gurus out there? I have downloaded the latest version of Ubuntu Server but do not know the commands to enable and configure DHCP. I am open for other suggestions too. thanks.
