Thank you so much for your response Glenn,
Do you know, or somebody else knows, which is the DHCP client used by
Windows XP?, or wheather Windows XP can handle this optional settings? what
kind of modifications should we implement on the clients that they support
this options if it is possible to send them though DHCP?
Thanks and Greetings,
