view story

http://serverfault.com – I run a Mac and release/renew my IP with: sudo ipconfig set en0 DHCP In wireshark I get the following with udp.port==67 as filter: Why are the messages sent from my computer broadcasted, but the server send them directly to me. The litterature I have say everything is broadcasted. Why isn't that the case here? (HowTos)
