I have an embedded system that has Ethernet and wifi. I want to setit up in a way that it provides IP to both interfaces. The system uses BusyBox. and I an new in this area.

can you provide a sample configuration that I can run to setup dhcpd for both of these interfaces?

Should I run two instance of dhcpd to do this?

The Linux is based on TI EZSDK ( for arm processors)

indeed, you should start two instances of dhcpd you can use [ access.redhat.com/site/documentation/en-US/… ] as a start point and adapt it to your dhcpd server – vasily-vm Feb 6 '14 at 18:43
openWRT is a router-specific very light distribution based on busybox. If you just want to setup a router maybe you can try it. You can find it here: openwrt.org . I use it at home for my wifi/eth router, and it work really well. – Danduk82 Feb 6 '14 at 23:53
@vasily-vm No, you do not need two instances of dhcpd, you simply need two subnet declarations in /etc/dhcp/dhcpd - as given in the link you mention. – ALAN WARD Jun 28 '15 at 15:20
