Abstract

This option is provided by DHCP servers to DHCP clients to identify the origin of a DHCPOFFER -- on a basis other than a server's IP address -- so that a DHCP client may optionally select from among multiple offers based on a client's preference to a particular DHCP server(s). The information contained in this option is a hex value indicating the assigned identification of the server originating the DHCPOFFER in which this option is contained.
