Hi list

I'm having a problem with a Brother L-5250DN network printer which is
not accepting ther "routers" option from my DHCP server. The printer's
boot method is set to "DHCP", and indeed it gets a valid IP and the
correct subnet mask, but it always sets the gateway to Which
means that no one outside of the printer's subnet can print to it. All
other network devices in that subnet set the "routers" option
correctly, just not that printer. Has anyone seen anything similar?
I'set the printer's IP etc. manually for now, but I'd rather have it
use DHCP.

Ah yes, my dhcpd version is 3.1.1. If you need the config file, just
tell me, and I'll post it.

TIA, Tina
