[Dnsmasq-discuss] DHCP DISCOVER and DHCPACK on different subnets getting lost

Hi Albert,

Thanks for the pointer. It seems as though I'm not running in authoritative
mode, but it also seems I don't need to. This seems to be an issue tied to
the DHCP client, or at least a class of them. The client seems to be stuck
holding onto it's original IP address unless I power cycle it. Frustrating.

I'll keep you posted if I find anything further.

Loving dnsmasq though. Brilliant.
