Dear Folks,
	I'm installing a Mitel 3340 IP phone system that needs to co-exist
with k12ltsp. The Mitel docs tell me to run the phones on their own VLAN.
Fine, dhcp is served on eth0 -, the Mitel box goes on this
segment too, the VLAN for phones will be According to the
docs I need to add the following lines to dhcpd.conf:

#option option-03 code 03 = string;
#option option-130 code 130 = text;
#option option-132 code 132 = string;
#option option-133 code 133 = string;
#option option-03  = "";
#option option-128 = "";
#option option-129 = "";
#option option-130 = "MITEL IP PHONE";
#option option-132 = 2;
#option option-133 = 6;

When I add them uncommented and restart dhcpd, the PCs on the
segment get addresses all right, but default gateway and DNS are not set.
I seem to be missing something obvious. Thanks, julius

P.S. If you know of a good tutorial on VLANs, please send me a link, I
must have been dozing off when that was covered :-)
