    Default Question on DHCP scope options

    Was looking at my scope options for DHCP. Was wondering,

    What is the difference between option 006- DNS Servers and option 005- Name Servers?

    Aren't they the same?

    It looks like 005 is for IEN-116 name servers, which are predecessors to DNS. And yes, I had to google that.

    Isn't it obvious? Option 5 is for Name Servers, while option 6 is for Domain Name Servers.

    Looks like option 5 is for Internet Name Servers, which is a predecessor of DNS.

    More information:

    EDIT: You beat me! Well I didn't have to google for it, so I win!


    PS: That previous statement was a lie.
