Hi !
My question to all of you is regarding the "options" field of DHCP header.
*	Is it possible for DHCP server to receive some message with the
of options field = X, and send another message as a reply to client with
the length of options field = Y ? 
*	According to RFC 2131, the minimal length of the options field is
what is the maximal length of this field ?
     Thanks in advance
