[ipxe-devel] Question about DHCP option length

Dear iPXE developers,

I just found that the length of a DHCP option cannot exceed 255 bytes.
Is there another possibility to pass parameters from a DHCP server to
the iPXE client which are longer than that? Or changing the limit on
DHCP options?

That would be very helpful in implementing booting Windows boxes via
WinDRBD (https://github.com/LINBIT/windrbd).

Thanks for any hints,

- Johannes
