The error code option can be defined as follows:

+-----+-----+-----+-----+-----+-----+-----+-----+ ...
|    opt no |   length  |   error   |  miscellaneous info such as err
string 
+-----+-----+-----+-----+-----+-----+-----+-----+ ...

We should define a basic set of error codes that can be extended by the
implementation.

Some of the error codes I can think of are:

a) The server is out of addresses
b) The server is not able to service the client request (Need for
multiple error codes?)
c) Invalid request for address
d) Requested option not available
e) The client could not be authenticated

Subject: [dhcwg] Error code option

 From the issues list generated at the WG meeting in London:

    * Add an "error code" option, to indicate errors
      not connected with a specific option

      WG consensus: yes; should allow inclusion of text message

What error codes do we know of today that should be defined for
this option?  Please respond to me or to the mailing list...
