Hi Mr Bean,
As this is a Vista issue, I can't see how m0n0wall nor pfSense could be
supplying a fix for it. :) However, adding this DHCPBROADCAST flag
into the standard Loonix/BSD dhcp servers shouldn't be that much of an
issue considering Vista and the upcoming Windows 7 will likely both need
Second, we've got quite a few Vista boxen out there on different
networks and not seen these issues, though we're normally obtaining DHCP
from an SBS box. There's a number of Vista boxes we have at people's
homes, though, and a number of those are protected by m0n0wall or
DD-WRT, and we've not seen this issue yet.
