DHCP Option 156 on Entrasys B5 swtiches


Hello Folks,

I am trying to enable option 156 on my dhcp pool. The following string is for my IP phones:
ftpservers=172.16.6.10, country=1, language=1, configServers=172.16.6.10

However the configuration doesn't seem to support plain text.
When I am in the command line the options I get are:

B5(su)->set dhcp pool MIAMIPOOL option 156 ?

ascii Specify the data in ASCII format.
hex Specify the data in HEX format.
ip Specify the data in IP format.

Is this possible to configure on this type of switch?

Thanks in advanced.

Never done it but you'd try this...

set dhcp pool MIAMIPOOL option 156 ascii "ftpservers=172.16.6.10, country=1, language=1, configServers=172.16.6.10"
I'll give it a go.

I just "reverse engineered" what I've read here....
