Dhcpmanager for SME Server
This contribution for SME Server adds the abilities to manage your dhcp server on SME Server
- manage dhcpd.leases (remove one or all ip leases)
- perform a Wake on Lan when a host is not up
- scan your network to see how many devices are up
- you can send winpopup for compatible devices to netsend protocol
- start/stop your dhcp server
- set values to dhcp server (range of ip, wins server, custom dns server, custom gateway, default-lease-time)
yum --enablerepo=smecontribs install smeserver-dhcpmanager
You will then need to activate the database changes etc. The 'official' way is to perform
signal-event post-upgrade; signal-event reboot
But if you do not want to restart your server
signal-event workgroup-update ; config set UnsavedChanges no
Go to the dhcpd panel on Server Manager and activate all you settings.
Netsend is used to Send messages to other users, computers, or messaging names on the network, but it is only compatible with windows XP. For W7 and after you must use 'msg' which is incompatible with the netsend protocol. However it is not available for all W7 versions. You can try Sent which needs to be installed on all windows clients.
With smeserver-dhcpmanager you can send Netsend message to one client or to all clients (think to install or allow in the firewall the netsend protocol or 'sent' on every windows client)
yum remove smeserver-dhcpmanager signal-event post-upgrade; signal-event reboot
