I started using the instructions in the link below to setup an Adhoc network.

I only got as far as the first step modifying the /etc/network/interfaces file. The dhcp install would not work, apt-get could not find a package to install or something to that effect. i tried dhcp3-server and dhcp-server, neither works. The curious thing is the adhoc SSID showed up on my smartphone and I was able to connect. Is a dhcp now avalible by default on the current Raspbian distro?
Are the above instructions (circa 2013) now obsolete? Is there a newer way to setup adhoc for SSH or server/web hosting on a Pi?
