DHCP uses UDP as transport protocol, afair. REBOL does support UDP, so
building a DHCP daemon should be possible :)

I suggest that you take a look at the networking stuff in the
REBOL/Core Users Guide (http://www.rebol.com/docs-core.html)
There is a tip how to use server ports in REBOL in the REBOL Cookbook,
(http://www.rebol.net/cookbook/) and it might be helpful even though
it's about TCP server ports.
