This document updates RFC 3825 to allow explicitly the transmission of DHCP option 123, "Location Configuration Information", from a DHCP client to a DHCP server. Transmission of option 123 from a client to a server allows a client that knows its location through some other means to communicate that location to the DHCP server.
