<title>Echoing client-id (RFC6842)</title>
<para>Original DHCPv4 spec (RFC2131) states that the DHCPv4 server must not
send back client-id options when responding to clients. However, in some cases
that confused clients that did not have MAC address or client-id. See RFC6842
for details. That behavior has changed with the publication of RFC6842 which
updated RFC2131. That update now states that the server must send client-id.
That is the default behaviour that Kea offers. However, in some cases older
devices that do not support RFC6842 may refuse to accept responses that include
client-id options. To enable backward compatibility, an optional flag has been
introduced. To configure it, use the following commands:</para>
&gt; <userinput>config add Dhcp4/echo-client-id</userinput>
&gt; <userinput>config set Dhcp4/echo-client-id True"</userinput>

server is expected to send packets to a node that does not
