Technical Summary
 
A DHCP server contains considerable authoritative information
concerning the IP addresses it has leased to DHCP clients.  Other
processes and devices, many that already send and receive DHCP format
packets, sometimes need to access this information.  The leasequery
protocol is designed to give these processes and devices a
lightweight way to access information that may be critical to their
operation.
