How to reset DHCP leases...
Authored by: xSmurf on Dec 18, '05 09:02:53AM
Kind of in the same line so I figured I'd post it here. It was useful for me, hope it will be for you. I have a server machine on a direct gigabyte link with the workstation. I recently moved that machine from OS X to NetBSD (Of course I run NetBSD ;). The problem is that OS X (on the workstation, which acts as the dhcp server for the direct link) would not reassign the proper ip, the one the server always had. This was a real pain in the rear since all my bookmarks we're set to use that ip. So if you wanna edit/remove the dhcp lease head to /private/var/db/dhcpd_leases and edit/remove the appropriate entry. Restart internet sharing and tada :D This works really well if you have only one machine on the other end.
