I’m looking for a dhcp server for Redhat 4., I’d like to have following features:

1. A list of mac addresses being kept in the server, an ip will be assigned if the connecting machine has mac address listed.

2. In addition to A, a possibility to specify a static ip for a particular mac address.

3. if machine is not listed in the mac address, connection will be refused to the Redhat 4 server even user manually setup a ip within the valid range.(Redhat server should refuse the connection if the ip is not issued by its dhcp server).

Possible? IF Yes ( how to step-by-step configuration or website Links )

The common linux dhcp server is dhcpd (dynamic host configuration protocol daemon). Do a google search for that and you'll find plenty of documentation, and you can install it on your redhat by using the root account and typing yum install dhcpd*

You have to edit something in dhcpd.conf once you installed/configured the dhcpd server. This is quick google from me..
