Charrua DHCP core library.

charrua-core is an ISC-licensed DHCP library implementation in ocaml.

It provides basically two modules, a Dhcp responsible for parsing and constructing DHCP messages and a Dhcp_server module used for constructing DHCP servers.

charrua-unix is a Unix DHCP server based on charrua-core.

charrua-mirage is a Mirage DHCP server based on charrua-core.

You can browse the API for [charrua-core] at http://haesbaert.github.io/charrua-core/api

Features ~~~~~~~~

  • Dhcp_server supports a stripped down ISC dhcpd.conf, so you can probably just use your old dhcpd.conf.
  • Support for multiple interfaces/subnets.
  • Logic/sequencing is agnostic of IO and platform, so it can run on Unix as a process, as a Mirage VM or anything else.
  • Functorizes over Logging functions.
  • Code is purely functional with the exception of Dhcp Leases.
  • With charrua-mirage you can run a server directly on top of Xen, without a full operating system.
  • It's in ocaml, so it's pretty cool.

The name charrua is a reference to the, now extinct, semi-nomadic people of southern South America.

This project became one of the [Mirage Pioneer] (https://github.com/mirage/mirage-www/wiki/Pioneer-Projects) projects.
