Description

Not sure it's a bug, more of something missing. As reported on the forum 2.4 dhclient does not send option 77. This particularly affects customers of Orange France who need to send this optiom. I have re-applied the patches that were done to the 2.3 client, where it works, to the 2.4 client; the user on the forum reported it's working correctly.

Should I do a PR to the main FreeBSD repo ir PR it to pfSense/FreeBSD-Src?

This option is mandatory to replace a livebox from Orange (main Internet Provider in France) using a xDSL or Fiber access.
Without this option there is no internet access.

Could we have it sooner ? To be able to test it !
Many thanks in advance.

I agree with Nicolas,
we are quite a few to replace the Pfsense binaries to make this scenario work in France.

Replacing files on Pfsense is really a bad workaround and we would love the dhcpclient to support other options.

thanks
