I would like to know what is the best way to get the DHCP server address from a client (linux based), who just got an IP address from the DHCP server?
I searched and found this in most of the articles,
But say, the client is a Virtual machine and was assigned an IP address from some external DHCP server, then the file '/var/lib/dhcp3/dhclient.leases' won't be present.
I've tried doing a 'ifconfig' in the client machine and this was the output
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:0C:29:2C:3C:6A inet addr:192.168.163.128 Bcast:192.168.163.255 Mask:255.255.255.0
I can see the BroadCast(Bcast) address but cannot find anywhere the real DHCP server address.
Hope somebody could provide me a good solution.
Thanks and best regards.
