Hi .. 
 
I want to send some configuration settings from DHCP server to the client.
These settings are my proprietary settings. For example: IP address of the
portal website and things like that. 
Can you tell me if there is a way to send such configuration information
from DHCP server to client using the DHCP messages ?? 
 
And what changes would I need to make to my DHCP server to cater for these
extra settings to be sent ? 
 
Thanks in advance
Vivek
