     dhclient.leases - DHCP client lease database


     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 oc-

     The lease file is named "dhclient.leases.IFNAME", where "IFNAME"
     represents the network interface the DHCP client acquired the lease on.
     For example, 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).


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

     RFC 2132, RFC 2131.


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

     The current implementation was reworked by Henning Brauer
