Last Updated:06/27/2017


Where can I find the references to module guide resources for the Express Logic NetX™ DHCP Client module on g_dhcp_client?


Information on the module guide itself and the associated resources and known issues are available here.


The NetX DHCP Client module defines APIs for creating and starting the DHCP client. Internally, the DHCP client handles all communication with the DHCP server to obtain an IP address. 

The NetX DHCP Client module supports the following features:

  • The NetX DHCP Client module is compliant with RFC2132, RFC2131, and related RFCs.
  • The module provides high-level APIs to:
    • Create and delete a DHCP client instance
    • Start, stop, and reinitialize the DHCP client (to restart the DHCP client protocol)
    • Request a specific IP Address from the server
    • Specify the network interface to run the DHCP client on
    • Supply an application-created packet pool to the DHCP client
