NAME
       dhcpdump	- DHCP packet dumper

SYNOPSIS
       dhcpdump	[-h regular-expression]	-i interface

DESCRIPTION
       This command parses the output of tcpdump to display the	dhcp-packets
       for easier checking and debugging.

USAGE
       dhcpdump	-i /dev/fxp0

       If you want to filter a specific	Client Hardware	Address	(CHADDR), then
       you can specifiy	it as a	regular	expressions:

       dhcpdump	-i /dev/fxp0 -h	^00:c0:4f

       This will display only the packets with Client Hardware Addresses which
       start with 00:c0:4f.

OUTPUT
	 TIME: 15:45:02.084272
	   IP: 0.0.0.0.68 (0:c0:4f:82:ac:7f) > 255.255.255.255.67 (ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff)
	   OP: 1 (BOOTPREQUEST)
	HTYPE: 1 (Ethernet)
	 HLEN: 6
	 HOPS: 0
	  XID: 28f61b03

       OPTION:	53 (  1) DHCP message type	   3 (DHCPREQUEST)

       At the option field, the	first field is the value of the	option,	the
       second one (between brackets) is	the length of the option-datafield,
       the third field is the name of the option, the fourth field is the data
       of the option.

RETURN VALUES
       Always 0.

NOTES
       Privileged access is often needed for accessing the interface.

BUGS
       Not all the parameter options are printed verbose, because of lack of
       documentation. Not all the options are tested, because of lack of
       clients/servers with these options. If you have a dump of one of	them,
       please send them	to me and I'll incorperate them.
