Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) FORCERENEW allows for the
reconfiguration of a single host by forcing the DHCP client into a
Renew state on a trigger from the DHCP server.  In the Forcerenew
Nonce Authentication protocol, the server sends a nonce to the client
in the initial DHCP ACK that is used for subsequent validation of a
FORCERENEW message.  This document updates RFC 3203.  [STANDARDS-TRACK]
