Description breed 1999-06-15 08:22:14 UTC
The minimum length specfied in RFC 2131 is 312 and some DHCP
servers take advantage of that minimum.  (Such as Ascend
pipelines).  Pump is currently set to 340.

Comment 1 breed 1999-06-15 16:10:59 UTC
There is a patch that fixes this and other problems in pump (as well
as reporting errors in syslog) at

Comment 2 Erik Troan 1999-06-22 19:24:59 UTC
I've fixed this in CVS, and the fix will appear soon. I'd appreciate
it if you'd like through my change and see if your result and error
mods are still appropriate; I had too much in the way to be able to
just apply them.

If you're interested, I'll be happy to mail you a snapshot of the
source code.

Comment 3 Erik Troan 1999-08-16 18:29:59 UTC
Fixed in pump 0.7.0.
