This is on a private LAN where I handle all the hardware, so I do let the clients tell the DHCP server what name to use. The clients have a hostname set. When they boot up, they look for a DHCP server to give them an IP. The DHCP server gives them an IP, and acts as a go-between telling the DNS server the client's hostname and IP address. > According to all information available on the matter the dhclient.conf > is where you need to set the dhclient -H option for automation.

I'll say it again, post your DHCP configuration files (server and client). -- (This computer runs FC7, my others run FC4, FC5 & FC6, in case that's important to the thread.) Don't send private replies to my address, the mailbox is ignored. I read messages from the public lists.
