    Hi,
    I'm a little news with Linux and DHCPD ISC server.
    I set a test network with 1 DHCP client ,1 DHCP server ISC et 1 hub.
    My STB boot and has an IP address and DHCP options. But I'm a little
    suprise to see on Ethereal capture that DHCP ISC server send DHCP Offer
    and DHCP Ack by unicast and not by broadcast (255.255.255.255).

    There is any DHCP option to set for have brodcast answer from DHCP ISC
    server?
    Thanks
    David

    Meanwhile, I found the solution. In DHCP ISC, you need to set following
    option:
    always-broadcast on;

    Thanks
    David
