I have installed isc-dhcp-server on a Debian. I'm making some experiments with this as I'm a little bit newbie on network administration.
I have read that you should assign static IP to any ethernet interface from where you want to serve IP addresses from your DHCP, but I don't really understand why.
I mean, why my DHCP server can't assign an IP address to "myself" ? All I need is to define a rank of IP addresses on dhcpd.conf, isn't it?
A lot of services (BIND, ISC-DHCP, etc..) bind to a certain IP address. If they were receiving DHCP addresses it would make it very hard to administer.
