I have printouted contents of "local" variable and each "udp" item in udp_demux() (see attached screenshot). The "pad" bytes are scrambled in received buffer while items' pads has all zeroes.

May be a problem in union:


while filling sockaddr_in6 structure's "sin6.sin6_addr" field that is somewhere in "pad" field of sockaddr_tcpip structure:


For the ipv4's dhcp requests all pads are zeroes.
