I'm trying to use this option to force the broadcast bootp flag to be set on bootp replies.  The only way I am able to make it work is to run 'dnsmasq --dhcp-broadcast' from the command line.  I want the dhcp-broadcast option to be used unconditionally.

I haven't found the correct way to add dhcp-broadcast to dnsmasq.conf in order to achieve the same thing.

In dnsmasq.conf, I have tried:

After making the change, I restart dnsmasq.  Neither one is making the broadcast bit get set, but again, it does work when I run dnsmasq from the command line.  What am I missing?  This is on dnsmasq-2.55.
