Lanlord

Lanlord is DHCP lease tracker designed to run as a CGI program. Written in Python, Lanlord is an easy to install and run.

Lanlord.cgi needs to be placed on your servers cgi-bin directory (don't forget to make it executable!) and make sure the LeaseFile variable points to where your dhcpd.leases file is located.

What is DHCP?? Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol allows hosts on a network to get an IP number at boot time. Someone does not have to assign an IP number to a particular system and the system 'leases' the IP only as long as needed. This makes network management much easier.
