Hi Manuel & lists (cc-ing -dev),
> m0n0wall loses the DHCP lease database on reboot - this is a design choice.
After actually digging up and reading the relevant RFC (2131), I feel
the need to reiterate my previously stated point that this is a bad
design choice. It conflicts with an explicit design goal of the DHCP
mechanism. To quote:
> The following list gives design goals specific to the transmission of

> configuration parameters despite restarts of the DHCP mechanism,
I really feel this leaves no room for slack (apart from the fact that
I'm one of those rare folks that is actually bitten by the loss of state) .
Will a big "please" do? :-)
