I've seen clients that insist on certain things being present (or at
least certain behaviors) without asking for them - on the basis that
*the* DHCP server will send them (where *the* means *Windows*).
Though in the case of the one that comes most immediately to mind
(RIP on a Minolta digital copier), it was a matter of not accepting a
lease with less than 2 years life on it - very random !
Visit http://www.magpiesnestpublishing.co.uk/ for books by acclaimed
author Gladys Hobson. Novels - poetry - short stories - ideal as
Christmas stocking fillers. Some available as e-books.
