I have this entry in dhcpd.conf:

set vendor-string = option vendor-class-identifier;

and it results in a lease that includes this line:

  set vendor-string = "MSFT 5.0";

This is IPv4, not sure about IPv6, but I think it should be the same.


Unfortunately either of them did not work. The entries must have been correct though as restarting dhcpd6 did not generate any error messages. It seems that the ones working with IPv4 won't work with IPv6. Any other ideas?
