I have done a fresh install of Ubuntu Server version 12.04 and am trying to install a dhcp server package using the following command:

sudo apt-get install dhcp3-server

However I get this:

Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
E: Unable to locate package dhcp3-server

Can someone tell me how to install this package on my server?

Thanks, Alex.

The package is now named isc-dhcp-server. When in doubt just search using the terms ubuntu package daemon name.

http://packages.ubuntu.com/precise/isc-dhcp-server

Thanks man, also can you tell me how to edit the configuration file? –  Alex Hope O'Connor Aug 8 '12 at 7:44

The configuration file you'll want to edit is /etc/dhcp/dhcpd.conf

Also, don't forget to set the adapter in /etc/default/isc-dhcp-server
