Can UDPcast be configured to "try harder/longer" to obtain a DHCP lease?
We have spanning tree running on our switches and updcast always fails
to obtain a lease on the first three attempts, then manually telling it
to try again always results in success. This defeats the "preconfigured"
Looking at the docs for udhcpc, I see:
-T,--timeout=N Try to get a lease for N seconds (default 3)
Could you bump this up by default to say 10 seconds (or have it tunable
on the cast-o-matic)?
I do not think, that the Spanning Tree Protocol is the
the "Portfast" setting on the Switch? The Port for the dhcp-connection (at
boot time, without portfast) is to slow (port on the switch is not up, while
asking for the lease).
(sorry for my english)
BTW, the mailman page for this list is giving a "500 Internal Server
