Hello -

The RTEMS User Manual claims support for "BOOTP/DHCP".  I realize that
the two protocols are quite similar, but while BOOTP works, DHCP does
not.  For my project, using BOOTP is not an option, as I am not allowed,
nor do I want to have to add hardware addresses to the DHCP server.

Am I correct in assuming that RTEMS has no DHCP client support?  Does a
DHCP client for RTEMS exist?
