DHCP Lite library for Arduino v0.14 This library implements DHCP and DNS server processing for Arduino. The library has been tested on Arduino Uno/Duemilanove. It correctly handles requests from clients running Windows Vista, Ubuntu 11.04, and iOS v.2, v.4 and v.5. See LIMITATIONS and KNOWN BUGS. Visit http://notebook.kulchenko.com/dhcplite for updates. HISTORY I have been looking for DHCP server library for Arduino and while there are several libraries mentioned in Arduino forums (most notably http://www.musically.me.uk/DHCP_Web_Server_12.pde, http://www.aether-hemera.com/blog/default.asp?PostId=30, and Nebster's DHCP server code from this forum thread http://www.arduino.cc/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1239258729), some used UDP libraries I could not use and some I simply could not get to work. I wrote this library in a way that should be easy to integrate with other network libraries as it only takes a buffer (that is expected to have a DHCP message or DNS message) and compiles a response using the same buffer. INSTALLATION Copy the content of examples/ and libraries/ to your Arduino folders: arduino/examples/ and arduino/libraries/. THIRD PARTY SOFTWARE The library has no external dependencies. The example is using RedFly library that comes with RedFly shield (both are available at http://www.watterott.net/projects/redfly-shield). LIMITATIONS Only DHCP REQUEST and DHCP DISCOVER messages are being handled. All DHCP INFORM messages get DHCP NAK in response. Only 12 leases are tracked by default. KNOWN BUGS Windows Vista (and possibly other versions of Windows) seems to rely on DNS Suffix Search List rather than Connection-specific DNS suffix in generating fully qualified hostnames (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/275553). This means that even though you can set your domain name to "mydomain.net" and the DHCP server will report this using option 15, when you try to resolve "arduino", it will send a request for "arduino.mshome.net", rather than "arduino.mydomain.net" (which will fail to resolve). If you know how to fix this, send me an email. AUTHOR Paul Kulchenko (firstname.lastname@example.org) LICENSE See LICENSE file HISTORY Mar 17 2012 v0.14 Updated the example to store WiFi configuration in EEPROM and to provide a web interface to update it. Mar 10 2012 v0.12 Updated to work with Arduino 1.0. Nov 16 2011 v0.10 Fixed a bug with incorrect CRC being stored when IP address is assigned, which caused incorrect processing of multiple DHCP REQUEST messages from the same IP. This fixed the issue with iOS and MacOS clients. Thanks to David Simmons @davidsimmons.com for assistance. Nov 12 2011 v0.06 Added AJAX example with keep-alive to read real-time data over HTTP. Nov 07 2011 v0.05 Added options for renewal and rebinding timers. Cleaned up code. Oct 30 2011 v0.04 Added conversion to lowercase hostname and a check for simple hostname to DNS processing. Oct 29 2011 v0.03 Added DNS processing. Oct 29 2011 v0.02 Updated hash to a longer and more robust version. Oct 28 2011 v0.01 First release.
