The Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) provides a framework for passing configuration information to hosts on a TCP/IP network. Currently options are limited to an information size of 256 bytes because of the one-octet size of the length field. This document defines a new option that permits the continuation of the previous option information.
