Does the FX7500 support any DHCP options?  Customer is asking if it can support Dynamic Host Configuration via DHCP option

Hi Gregory,I factory

Hi Gregory,

I factory-defaulted an FX7500 and here are the only options it asks for (via a DHCP DISCOVER captured with Wireshark on Windows 2012 R2):

FX7500 firmware 1.2.84 & 2.3.23

OPTION 1: Subnet Mask

OPTION 2: Time Offset

OPTION 3: Router

OPTION 6: Domain Name Server

OPTION 12: Host Name

OPTION 15: Domain Name

OPTION 28: Broadcast Address


Specifying option 12 does not work in these versions of code--the reader sends a request for its default host name and/or doesn't listen to the offered option from the DHCP server.

We have requested changes to the code to allow changing the hostname, but it has not been implemented.
