Hi All,

I have a small doubt in the dhcp server.

According to my thinking, the dhcp server takes the configuration file
to configure the client.
So the options fields in the dhcp server are statically linked, as the
server will send the data depending on the configuration file

I was going through the code and cound not find the dynamic linkage
I could find the hash table implementation which reads the configuration
file for all the options.

Plz let me know if we can use the dhcp server with the dynamically
Like I can compute something from the incoming dhcp client packet for a
particular option.
As in the case of authentication option - 90.

Plz let me know if my understanding is wrong.
