Riptide Software’s Robust DHCP Server using RaspberryPi 2 !

Posted by Raquel Galan on June 11, 2015

Riptide Software solved an issue a customer was having getting a Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) server to function in a particular way. The requirements: multiple IP ranges with limited communications between the ranges, variable network component lease times from an hour to possibly several days, and the need for the equipment to function in a less-than-ideal environment. Riptide provided a robust and cost effective solution for the project using a RaspberryPi 2 DHCP Server to handle a network of over 500 IP addresses with varying lease times.
