Read additional DHCP Options

Recommended Posts

Skam

Hi,

is there any way to get Options from the Windows XP DHCP-Client? I configured an additional Option (Linux DHCP-Server) which is transferred to the client. This works find with linux dhclient or dhcpcd but I found no way to receive this value withing Windows.

Thanx in advance

Max

The RFCs for DHCP allow you to create custom scope options, but the Windows DHCP clients only recognize a certain fixed subset of information options. It's possible this changed in Vista or later OSs, but I think you're stuck with the standard options in XP.

Ref: KB121005: DHCP Options Supported by Clients (scroll down to 'Information Options')
