Description

As suggested in forum: https://forum.pfsense.org/index.php?topic=80264.0

To prevent the possibility that a malicious or accidental use of bootp on the network could exhaust the DHCP address pool.

History

I am also seeing BOOTP queries being served for captive portal users. The problem is that BOOTP leases do not have a maximum lease time by default and they eventually exhaust the pool.

As a workaround, I disabled BOOTP for the captive portal's DHCP pool.

For interfaces where you might need BOOTP, perhaps having the ability to set the dynamic-bootp-lease-length in the GUI could be another option?
