NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       dhclient.leases - DHCP client lease database

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       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 occurrance.

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