Description Matt Holiday 1999-11-15 04:07:32 UTC
Pump failed to work correctly both at home (Bay Netgear router) and at
work (WinNT server).  In the first case, there's some spurious code where
pump sends two discovers -- don't think this is correct per the DHCP
spec, and it confuses the Bay device.  In the second case, pump doesn't
store all the options returned in the response to the discover, so when
it sends a request, and the server doesn't regurgitate all the same data
again, it's lost key info, like the DNS server IP addresses.  I've got a
hack to solve both problems; I now have it working in both locations.

This should all work in pump 0.7.8, available from ftp://people.redhat.com/ewt
