kea dhcp server in VyOS


Hi all,

First of all, thanks for the great work of keeping VyOS alive.

I am currently interested in the new DHCP server being developed by the ISC. It’s name is KEA. Have a look at or for more info.

I was wondering how much work would it take to replace the venerable isc_dhcp3 with kea.

As far as I’ve seen, I would have to:

Any ideas thoughts, advices, warnings or discouragements?


PS: I am an absolute newbie in vyos so please excuse my ignorance (working on it though)
