Updated dnsmasq packages that add an enhancement are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The dnsmasq package contains Dnsmasq, a lightweight DNS (Domain Name Server) forwarder and DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) server.
- A new subpackage, dnsmasq-utils, has been added. The dnsmasq-utils subpackage contains the dhcp_lease_time and dhcp_release utilities, which serve to query and remove DHCP server leases using the standard DHCP protocol.
All dnsmasq users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which add this enhancement.
