Share that dhcp-host lines with your audience here.
Make it possible that they can verify how far they match

From my /etc/dnsmasq/dhcp-lana.hosts file, in which all lines are comments beginning with #, whitespace, or lines which resemble the following:

| xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx,,phone1,12h
| xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx,,phone2,12h
... etc.

Again, these lines match incomming requests, and send dhcp offers just fine. I have tried alternate formatting, which included tag sets which then attempted to use dhcp-option and dhcp-option-force. No combination I have tried will send a hostname to a client that included a hostname in its request to dnsmasq.

Put a netwerk capture in libpcap format on-line and provide the URL to wget it.
I would like to see what goes over the wire.

What goes over the wire, according to wireshark, using a capture filter of "port 67 or 68" on the interface in question, is a valid dhcp discover, offer, request, ack sequence, that includes the following dhcp options in the Offer and ACK packets from dnsmasq -> the clients, in the following order:

| Option: (53) DHCP Message Type
| Option: (54) DHCP Server Identifier ( ip address )
| Option: (51) IP Address Lease Time
| Option: (58) Renewal Time Value
| Option: (59) Rebinding Time Value
| Option: (66) TFTP Server Name
| Option: (42) Network Time Protocol Servers
| Option: (15) Domain Name
| Option: (6) Domain Name Server
| Option: (3) Router
| Option: (1) Subnet Mask (
| Option: (255) End

If you wish to recreate the problem I am having in more detail for some reason, all you need do is have a dhcp client send option 12 Host Name to dnsmasq and attempt to configure dnsmasq to send a response with a different host name and capture the packets.

Yes, that is your problem^Wchallenge. I'm interrested in knowing
how far it a dnsmasq problem is.

The following thread is the one I referenced earlier, which contains the following comment from Simon:


| option 12 in DHCP replies will be sent only if option 12 appears in the
option-request list.

My clients, which are the spa3000 telephone adapter boxes running embedded firmware which I don't have access to, *do not request option 12* in the parameter request list, but do send an option 12 hostname announcing the name they think they have to dnsmasq.

Hopefully this is enough information such that the problem can be recreated and tested on other members systems with minimal interruption to their configurations if they are interested.
