How do I add custom DHCP Options in KitKat

My customer sets there location number via a custom DHCP option.  Ho do a set up KitKit DHCP requests to ask for an additional DHCP Option Number?  In the WinCE example below, Option 250 will be added to the DHCP Discover/Request message sent from the device.

 

Windows CE Example - Just had to add a reg key:

REGEDIT4

 

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Comm\NPME\XWing20_1\Parms\Tcpip\DhcpOptions]

@="1"

"250"=hex:\

      00,00,00,00

"67"=hex:\

      00,00,00,00

"66"=hex:\

      00,00,00,00

"47"=hex:\

      00,00,00,00

"46"=hex:\

      00,00,00,00

"44"=hex:\

      00,00,00,00

"15"=hex:\

      00,00,00,00

"6"=hex:\

      00,00,00,00

"3"=hex:\

      00,00,00,00

"1"=hex:\

      00,00,00,00

Chris,Not sure you you ever

Chris,

Not sure you you ever got your answer, but the DHCP Manager in MX (available through StageNow or EMDK) exposes DHCP options. I would make sure you are using the latest 5.0 as there has been updates in this area:

How about extending number of options that can be used?

We have customer that would like to use two custom options numbers.
