Task Scheduling in Linux

Submitted by abhishek on Sun, 08/31/2008 - 18:45
In recent past i use to do certain tasks at some scheduled time on the day which also included shutting down one of my machine at 8 PM. Then I came to know that this could be effectively done automatically using cron and so I am discussing cron in this post.

$ sudo apt-get install dhcp3-server

this would install the required packages

after the package is installed backup the default configuration files using the following

$ sudo cp /etc/default/dhcp3-server dhcp3-server.back

dhcp3-server is a file where you specify the interface DHCP should server (wlan0 in mycase)

edit the file using

$ sudo vim /etc/default/dhcp3-server





(wlan0 might be eth0 or eth1 in your case)

save and close the file

only one more file editing is required now create a backup for mail dhcpd.conf using

$ sudo cp /etc/dhcp3/dhcpd.conf /etc/dhcp3/dhcpd.conf.back

edit the file using
