BOOTP/DHCP turn on Flags [Broadcast]

  • Hi

    I have run in to a little issue I hope you guys can help me with. IPTV-Device sends a specific DHCP request and I want to mimic this to get an ip from my provider. So far I have managed to create most of the request but I cant figure out how to set the Broadcast flag?!

    Regards Christian

    My attempt but it don't like the line "always-broadcast yes"

    interface "igb0.269" {
            supersede interface-mtu 0;
    # DHCP Protocol Timing Values
    # DHCP Protocol Options
            send dhcp-class-identifier "VIASAT:IPTV:STB";;
            request Domain-Name-Server, Default-Gateway, Subnet-Mask, Domain-Name TFTP, BF, BS, Vendor-Option;;
            always-broadcast yes;;
            script "/usr/local/sbin/pfSense-dhclient-script";

    Original traffic from IPTV-device (yea im still missing the Option 43)
