My understanding was that the dhcp release mechanism in dnsmasq does not actually unicast a FORCERENEW message to the client. Does it? I thought it just released dnsmasq's record of the lease. If I'm right, this is a huge difference. It is a big pain knowing that there are many clients out there who may not renew their leases to get updated dhcp options for hours and hours. I don't think there is a reliable way for the server to force renew to the client, is there? Do clients support the FORCERENEW unicast message?
