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
