Hello Gilbert :-) I know that document already :-) There is neither
"vendor-class-identifier" nor "user-class" options in the basic
FreeBSD DHCP Client, so I want to use option-060 and option-077 but
none of those work (I also tired option-60 and option-77 with no
result), while other values work (i.e. option-088 or option-123), this
is the problem :-)

These options work in isc-42-dhcp-client, so there seems to be
something wrong with native DHCP Client...

Best regards,
