DHCLIENT.LEASES(5)        FreeBSD File Formats Manual       DHCLIENT.LEASES(5)

NAME
     dhclient.leases -- DHCP client lease database

DESCRIPTION
     The Internet Software Consortium DHCP client keeps a persistent database
     of leases that it has acquired that are still valid.  The database is a
     free-form ASCII file containing one valid declaration per lease.  If more
     than one declaration appears for a given lease, the last one in the file
     is used.  The file is written as a log, so this is not an unusual occur-
     rence.

     The lease file is named dhclient.leases.IFNAME, where IFNAME represents
     the network interface the DHCP client acquired the lease on.  For exam-
     ple, if dhclient(8) is configured for the em0 network device, the lease
     file will be named dhclient.leases.em0.

     The format of the lease declarations is described in dhclient.conf(5).

FILES
     /var/db/dhclient.leases.IFNAME  Current lease file.

AUTHORS
     The dhclient(8) utility was written by Ted Lemon <mellon@vix.com> under a
     contract with Vixie Labs.

     The current implementation was reworked by Henning Brauer
     <henning@openbsd.org>.
