Hi all- I've configured a dhcp server (solaris) to serve information on static route configurations to our dhcp clients. I got the server to serve the static routes (via the StaticRt symbol).  Works great.    Now the only problem is that my DHCP clients (i.e. windoze2k) are setting a

Best regards,
