Empty DHCP client hostname and client identifier in GUI not respected
|Affected version:||Affected Architecture:|
While replacing my telco router with pfSense I came across an issue where the telco DHCP server would not respond to my request. This ended up being because despite no hostname being configured in the GUI pfSense (actually the DHCP client program) was still sending the MAC address of the interface as the DHCP client identifier and the hostname as the hostname.
By explicitly configuring the DHCP hostname and client identifier in the configuration with empty values no hostname and client identifier was sent.
If this is expected behavior then some method to have it truly be empty and not present would be appreciated.
If this is not expected behavior then my change above would be applicable, although this would introduce a behavior change.
