newest tutorials use dnsmasq
02:38
but dhcp is dhcp is dhcp
02:38
derp, he's not here anymore
02:38
you win again, weechat

<vagrantc>
isc-dhcp-server was commonly used for dhcp servers for many years, maybe the defacto standard ...
02:57
but for inexperienced people, dnsmasq is easier to set up, and easier for developers to develop tools to assist with generating dnsmasq configuration
02:57
if they ever come back again
02:57
... :)
02:58
no reason it shouldn't work if you somewhat know what you're doing

<mwalters>
I find the "scripting" style of config easier to understand than the strange match/tagging in dnsmasq
04:43
at least at first I did
05:13
<alkisg>
isc-dhcp doesn't support proxydhcp
05:14
That's the main reason to prefer dnsmasq; as isc-dhcp requires re-wiring a computer lab in the specific 2-nic way that isc wants it
05:14
Not everyone has 2 switches, or can have the ltsp server always on, even when clients boot to windows etc
05:14
Or a configurable external dhcp server
05:15
So proxydhcp is a good default, so... dnsmasq

<mwalters>
sure, most folks with an existing network won't want to change up their dhcp implementation
13:30
good to know, too... gonna be rolling out vlans this year... didn't realize that isc doesn't support proxying
13:30
huge broadcast domains get out
