DHCPCLIENT(1)		       FreeRADIUS Daemon		 DHCPCLIENT(1)

NAME
       dhcpclient  -  Send  a DHCP request with	provided RADIUS	attributes and
       get the output response.

SYNOPSIS
       dhcpclient [-d raddb_directory]	[-D  dictionary_directory]  [-f	 file]
       [-h]  [-i interface] [-t	timeout] [-v] [-x] server[:port] {discover|re-
       quest|decline|release|inform|auto}

DESCRIPTION
       dhcpclient is a DHCP test client	program. It can	 send  arbitrary  DHCP
       packets to the FreeRADIUS server	running	as DHCP	server,	then shows the
       reply.  It can be used to test changes you made in the configuration of
       the  radius  server, or it can be used to monitor if a radius server is
       up.

       dhcpclient reads	radius attribute/value pairs from its standard	input,
       or from a file specified	on the command line. It	then encodes these at-
       tribute/value pairs using the dictionary, and sends  them  to  the  lo-
       cal/remote server.

OPTIONS
       -d raddb_directory
	      The  directory  that contains the	user dictionary	file. Defaults
	      to /usr/local/share/examples/freeradius/raddb.

       -D dictionary_directory
	      The directory that contains the main dictionary  file.  Defaults
	      to /usr/share/freeradius.

       -f file[:file]
	      File  to	read  the  attribute/value  pairs from.	If this	is not
	      specified, they are read from stdin.  This option	can be	speci-
	      fied  multiple times, in which case packets are sent in order by
	      file, and	within each file, by first packet to last  packet.   A
	      blank line separates logical packets within a file.

       -h     Print usage help information.

       -i interface
	      Select  which interface to send/receive at packet	level on a raw
	      socket.

       -t timeout
	      Wait timeout seconds before deciding that	the NAS	 has  not  re-
	      sponded  to  a request, and re-sending the packet. This may be a
	      floating point number, e.g. 2.2.

       -v     Print out	program	version	information.

       -x     Print out	debugging information.

       server[:port]
	      The hostname or IP address of the	remote	server.	 Optionally  a
	      UDP  port	 can  be specified. If no UDP port is specified, it is
	      looked up	in /etc/services.  The	service	 name  looked  for  is
	      radacct  for  accounting	packets,  and radius for all other re-
	      quests. If a service is not found	 in  /etc/services,  1813  and
	      1812 are used respectively.
