Loading… <-- bootpd(8) Mac OS X Manual Page

Load up /etc/bootpd.plist in a text editor.

You will probably need to google bootpd.list to find the relevant terms to disable the dhcp server, off the top of my head I'm not sure if the plist Apple generates by enabling internet sharing is commented at all. Once you're done with the changes you need you can restart it from the command line by typing:

sudo launchctl load -w /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/bootps.plist

Why not just set up internet sharing on your server, and avoid the hassle?
