Make PXE-Festures useful
Today I tried to get ebox to act as a pxe boot server. During my trials I found some problems:
- You cannot upload files into the directory served by the tftpd via the webinterface.
- after uploading a file (pxelinux.0) via the upload form, the entry written into dhcpd.conf is wrong, as it does not point to the file and should not be prefixed by the filepath (/var/lib/pxeboot), as it should be stored into the root directory of the tftp server.
- Documentation on this topic is in a very bad condition.
Support for other parameters
- WINS, NTP...
Add comment field for static dhcp mappings
When adding static dhcp mappings for mac addresses it would be nice to have a comment field as well, as the hostname of a computer might not be enough information to easily determine the user or type of that pc.
Dynamic DNS update
Every time a new DHCP client with its hostname asks for an IP and it is leased. Add a DNS entry dinamically with its hostname and the leased IP address.
Add option for groups to dhcp
Just like in normal dhcpd.conf syntax it would be nice to have the option to apply settings to groups of computers as well.
Add an option for the DHCP Agent Relay.
