DHCPNAK.  Search RFC2131 for 'Requested IP Address' option for the answer.

I have written a DHCP server, however I can't find anything in the RFC about
how to handle Option 50, client requested IPAddress on a DHCPDiscovery when
I want to give the client a different address.  

Right now I just respond with a DHCPOffer with a different IP.  After 2 or 3
Discovers/Offers the client finally sends a request.  Am I handling this
properly?   I would like to get rid of those 2 or 3 middle Discover/Offers
and speed up the process a bit...


Thanks


Jeremy
