Hi,

I want to use dnsmasq as a proxy dhcp at 10.40.1.100: an other
(windows) dhcp-server is active on the network, and a want to use
dnsmasq to send only the pxe-boot options for pxe-clients. I use the
following config-file:

listen-address=10.40.1.100

port=0

log-dhcp

dhcp-boot=/ltsp/i386/pxelinux.0

dhcp-option=3,10.40.1.100
dhcp-option=6,10.40.1.100
dhcp-option=15,"ltsp"
dhcp-option=17,"10.40.1.100:/opt/ltsp/i386"

pxe-prompt="Press F8 for boot menu", 3
pxe-service=X86PC, "Boot from network", /ltsp/i386/pxelinux
pxe-service=X86PC, "Boot from local hard disk", 0

dhcp-range=10.40.1.100,proxy


dnsmasq does not want to send the dhcp-options to the pxe-clients... I
did check this in the logs and with Wireshark. When a use dnsmasq as
full dhcp-server (with dhcp-range=10.40.1.150,10.40.1.200,8h instead
of dhcp-range=10.40.1.100,proxy), it does send these dhcp-options...

What am I doing wrong?

Thx in advance!
Jochen
