    Question writing dhcp client code using sockets on Linux

    Hi all,

    I want to write a generic network module.
    I want to register my device on network with DHCP.

    I want to program it in C using sockets on linux platform.
    So can anybody suggest me a good link or good book regarding overall network programming and specifically regarding writing dhcp client code using sockets.

    Any kind of help will be highly appreciated.

    Thanks & Regards,
    ./dash

    You shouldn't bump a 7 year old thread to ask a question.

    At any rate, look at some of the book suggestions in this thread. They seem to match what you are looking for.

    This thread was moved from a 7 year old thread.
