Share internet connections on a 192.168.x.x network

The above hint with all the bootpd and caching named (etc.) setup was really helpful. One thing though.

The author suggested /usr/libexec/bootpd -P -D

I found that even though I had deleted the 192.168.2 subnet from Netinfo, bootpd was still listening on the WiFi (en1) interface, and though it didn't seem to be trying to give out addresses, when it noticed the other DHCP server running, it would exit. So after a while, when my clients on en0 would request a new lease, the server was gone.

I solved this by adding -i en0 to the command line.

Also, I'm not sure what "-P" is, and when I started using -i en0 I also started using "-B" instead, to disable bootp and only use DHCP.

Thanks again for the excellent work above.
