I have a Cisco router. The firmware webpage has a tab the displays the DHCP client table. As the name suggests it lists all of the DHCP clients on the network. The first column in the table is the "Client Name". Some devices have names and some don't.
Where does the Client Name come from?
Is that part of the DHCP protocol?
It it an optional parameter in the protocol?
I am developing my own embedded ethernet device and it is one of the items that does not have a client name listed and I am trying to figure out why.
