Make Internet Sharing DHCP work with an Xbox/Xbox 360
Authored by: Michelasso on Jan 26, '08 10:19:14AM

Actually it doesn't seem to be a bug. It looks like Internet Sharing before to enable the sharing looks for the file /etc/bootpd.list. If one is there it reads it, gets the interfaces configurations and global parameters (like reply_threshold_seconds), stores it somewhere and then updates the file only for the interfaces that have been modified (enabled/disabled, I believe).

I discovered that because by mistake I didn't stop InternetSharing before to modify bootpd.plist. When later I stopped it bootpd.plist got deleted. Then it has been created again with the default OSX value once I activated Internet Sharing again. I believe it's kind of messy as a system configuration, but once it is understood it does the job.
