I searched the groups and came across another post regarding this same
problem, but didn't find a solution.

Here is the situation. We have 25 Novell clients on a separate subnet and
we are trying to use DHCP for SLP.

We have a BIND DNS server configured with these options:
option slp-directory-agent true 10.111.2.100,10.104.1.3;
option slp-service-scope true "L_SCOPE,L_MASTER_SCOPE";
and a Cisco router which is configured for DHCP relay. The workstation gets
all other IP address information via DHCP, but none of the SLP info.

I checked a DHCP session with Wireshark and didn't see DHCP options 85, 86
or 87 in the parameters list. I checked the NCP traffic and also couldn't
find any reference to a request for these options.

I read in the documentation that it should be possible to use DHCP for SLP
through a DHCP relay agent.

Here are the slpinfo results. The Scope List and DA are empty.

Any insight would be appreciated.
