Hello. Firstly - thanks for very good and small dns/dhcp/bootp server !

First question - is that possible to assign two or more ip addresses
for same mac? For example i have server, that need 3 ip on iterface
with one primary and two secondary. Is that possible via dnsmasq?
If that possible - what dhcp client supports this?

Second question - if i need dynamically add new mac-ip pairs in
running dnsmasq server, how can i do that? Is that possible to add
some file to include dir and HUPING server reload it? As i see
documentation says that HUP and USR1 not reload dnsmasq configs.
If dnsmasq not able to reload mac-ip info - how can i solve my problem
(may be using external lua script????)
