The term “client” is sometimes used to refer to a physical machine that is performing a client role on the network. However, the DHCP client described in this document is a software entity. The DHCP client is a daemon (dhcpagent) that runs in Oracle Solaris on a system that is configured to receive its network configuration from a DHCP server. DHCP clients from other vendors can also use the services of the DHCP server. However, this document describes only the DHCP client.
See Chapter 16, Configuring and Administering the DHCP Client for detailed information about the DHCP client.
