[Dnsmasq-discuss] dhcp not working

I am attempting to use dnsmasq to more fully supply functionality for  
my own project, akin (http://akutz.wordpress.com/2009/08/20/building-a-better-os-x-firewall-or-how-i-solved-the-nat-problem-for-virtualbox 
). The DNS portion is working great, but DHCP requests are stuck in an  
endless loop of DISCOVER,OFFER.

The options I use are:

sudo ./dnsmasq -a 192.168.3.1 -b -f -F  
192.168.3.15,192.168.3.254,255.255.255.0,192.168.3.255,1h -K -l /opt/ 
akin/dnsmasq.leases -d

I thought it might be an IP tables issue, but I set my deny rule to  
log and no packets are getting dropped. Besides, I have a static  
allowance for all traffic on the virtual interface that dns masq is  
operating on.

Thoughts?
