Black good for iscDHCP on Debian???

I’d like a small, cheap box to run Debian. This box will run ISC’s DHCP implementation, and host a DHCP scope for a small LAN. Perhaps in the future, it will expand to a DNS server.

I am new to Linux and the BeagleBone. Does this sound like a good use for the BeagleBone Black?? Thanks for your help.

Sure. But, you need to decide. Check at


Do you mean DNS server or DNS proxy ?

If you only want to as a DNS proxy , use dnsmasq , this will include dhcp server , and in most linux based home gateway , this is the first choice

If you want to use BIND+ DHCPD , skip this
