Great, i will.

Yes, the other two tickets on the user list are related to a project im working to move 350.000 MTA’s (telephony cablemodems) to a new schema and i would like to use kea with a common db backend and 8-10 DHCP servers. is pretty basic, but i need that option (122) i dont care if it’s not a common option i terms that i can set it up as a custom space. it’s ok with me, and to build dymamic hostnames (needed to provide an identified for the telephony part).

as soon i get this working ill be developing a web centralized management of the servers and a REST webservice to handle the whole that ill be glad to upload if you want.

Thanks again and ill be on track trying to help.

best regards

ps: please do not hesitate to contact me to my mail if there’s anything i can help.
