How can I test a dhcp server running on Ubuntu in vmware?

My dhcp configuration is:

ddns: update-style none;
default-lease-time 600;
max-lease-time 7200;
subnet netmask {
option routers;
option subnet-mask;
option broadcast-address
option domain-names-servers

What do you want to test? What do you want to know from testing the DHCP server? – qbi Jan 16 '13 at 20:13
