RFC 2131, "Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol", March 1997

Source of RFC: dhc (int)

Errata ID: 489

Status: Verified
Type: Editorial

Reported By: Soohong Daniel Park
Date Reported: 2004-04-29

Section 3.1 number 5 says:

     The client times out and retransmits the DHCPREQUEST message if the
     client receives neither a DHCPACK or a DHCPNAK message.  
     ...
     If the client
     receives neither a DHCPACK or a DHCPNAK message after employing the
     retransmission algorithm, the client reverts to INIT state and
     restarts the initialization process. 

It should say:

     The client times out and retransmits the DHCPREQUEST message if the
     client receives neither a DHCPACK nor a DHCPNAK message.  
     ...
     If the client
     receives neither a DHCPACK nor a DHCPNAK message after employing the
     retransmission algorithm, the client reverts to INIT state and

Section 4.1 says:

Normally, DHCP servers and BOOTP relay agents attempt to deliver
DHCPOFFER, DHCPACK and DHCPNAK messages directly to the client using
uicast delivery.

It should say:

Normally, DHCP servers and BOOTP relay agents attempt to deliver
DHCPOFFER, DHCPACK and DHCPNAK messages directly to the client using
unicast delivery.

Notes:

typo (uicast -> unicast). Updated 2013-06-05. Thanks to Carlos Prendes for the correction.

DHCPOFFER, DHCPACK and DHCPNAK messages directly to the client using
uicast delivery.

It should say:

Normally, DHCP servers and BOOTP relay agents attempt to deliver
DHCPOFFER, DHCPACK messages directly to the client using
unicast delivery.

Notes:

According to prior part description in section 4.1: "In all cases, when ’giaddr’ is zero, the server broadcasts any DHCPNAK messages to 0xffffffff.", the DHCP server should not send DHCPNAK in unicast to client unless 'giaddr' is not zero.

algorithm can determine the MTU of an arbitrary internet path [14].
