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>.
