we like to simulate cable modems to come up.
A DHCP DISCOVER from a cable modem has the MAC Address at 3 positions.

Client Identifier offset 28
option 61
option 82:2

perfdhcp seems to support randomizing the MAC only at one point in the DISCOVER packet.

is there a way of copying this MAC also to option 61 and 82:2 of the packet or just to give additional offsets of where to put this MAC too?

Hi Torsten,

This is an interesting idea. However, at the moment perfdhcp doesn't support it. It can only randomize a value at one certain offset.

This request will be discussed within the team but unfortunately I am not expecting this to be implemented anytime soon.

If you're interested to provide a patch with this functionality implemented, we are more then welcome to give it a try.
