[Dnsmasq-discuss] force broadcast BOOTP reply

on Linux dnsmasq uses unicast BOOTP replies in combination with ARP 
injection. I'm trying to boot a PXE client which doesn't like this (the 
fact that it's using BOOTP rather than DHCP already shows its age...) and 
wants a broadcast reply instead.

Is there a way to force a broadcast BOOTP reply instead of a unicast one?

Other BOOTP clients and of course all DHCP clients work fine with dnsmasq.

TIA, Bodo
