=head1 NAME

B<dhcpdump> - DHCP packet dumper

=head1 SYNOPSIS

B<dhcpdump> [B<-h> I<regular-expression>] B<-i> I<interface>

=head1 DESCRIPTION

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

=head1 USAGE

S<dhcpdump -i /dev/fxp0>

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

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

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

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.

=head1 RETURN VALUES

Always 0.

=head1 NOTES

Privileged access is often needed for accessing the interface.

=head1 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.
