DHCP option 184

  • Hello,

    In order to make my 3Com voip phones find their primary and secondary VCX server, I need to add some information in the DHCP server. Following the instructions, I have to add option 184 which I can add using the GUI of pfSense 2.0.1. But which type do I need to add?

    At this moment, the DHCP is running on a Mac OS X Server. There I have "Data" as type and the value is (HEX) "0104C0A8 20FA0204 C0A821FA"

    01 04 C0A820FA
    02 04 C0A821FA

    01 = primary VCX
    02 = secondary VCX
    04 = length
    C0 8A 20 FA =
    C0 8A 21 FA =

    This is the way you can do it on a Windows server: http://www.tek-tips.com/viewthread.cfm?qid=1492558
    This is the way you do it on a cisco router: http://antjedi.homeip.net/wordpress/?p=25

    I hope somebody can help me with this to make it work on pfSense 2.0.1.

    Thanks in advance!
