Thanks Radio for your thoughts! You know, it is a worthwhile thing to
try, and so obvious that I overlooked it! LOL But I do have a bit of
reservation, I think this approach would be OK in a SOHO or small
business environment, but not so sure if it would be a good idea in a
larger enterprise environment with hundreds of users. But ours is not
terribly large, and with fast networks and processors these days, it
probably won't have a huge impact on the network bandwidth to serve dhcp
requests more frequently....
