Macbook DHCP
 
On any apple computer, when you enable internet sharing you enable a DHCP to that interface as well.. i would like to disable apples built in DHCP server cause i have an HP proliant set up as a DHCP server on that network.. the two conflict... many of you are going to ask why? well the answer is im trying to PXE boot and run a FOG server (Free Online Ghost) with DHCP enabled on it.. but the two servers interfere... so.. please anyone that knows help

I am not sure the question here really. First you enable ICS, picking the device you want to share from. Then go in to the network preference pane. Highlight the networking device. Click Advanced. Then TCP/IP tab. Change 'Configure IPv4 to anually. Then enter your ip information as you so desire.

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?
