Response to: no option r for dhclient

Using -r to release a lease is the behaviour found in the ISC's version of dhclient. In June of 2005, FreeBSD stopped using the ISC version and replaced it with the OpenBSD version. If you prefer the ISC version, run "pkg_add -r isc-dhcp3-client" and follow the instructions you receive at the end of the install. If you miss that message, you can read it again by typing "pkg_info -Dx dhcp".

    Dru, thanks a lot. I really like your FreeBSD articles. I have been using Linux for a couple of years. I am moving to FreeBSD on the desktop and would also like to work on FreeBSD at work in the future.

    Getting a prompt reply from the author is really cool.

    Thanks a again.
