I have a situation at work, where I need  a FreeBSD machine to be in the
corporate DNS. We have been bought out, and the new owner says "no static
DNS entries". They use some Microsoft technogly where the client machiens
register thier names with the corprate DNS.

My Windows laptop for instance, may get different IP addresses using DHCP
depending on what physical location I connect it in. but it's always the
same DNS name.

Can anyone sugest where to look for information as to how this works, and
how I cna make my FreeBSD machine participate in this?

Following up to my own post. I have managed to get a wireshark capture of
my Windows laptop doing a DHCP operation, including registering it's name
with this DNS system. Can anyone tell me what I need to look for in this to
better narow down how this is ebing done?

Have you looked at dhclient.conf?
There should be an option to send your client's host name available.
