This blog post shows how to configure the ISC DHCP server to provision cable modems. Cable modems use DHCP, the Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol, to obtain the basic connectivity settings, including a number of DOCSIS-specific DHCP options.
Cable modems get their operational parameters using config files. These config files define what the internet subscription will be, what additional services are activated and other configuration details. This blog post will get you started creating your own modem config file.
