Hello, I am trying to read the "sname" value provided by the DHCP Servet DHCPOFFER in the wince embeded cliente (yes old o.s.:-( ) I expected to find a value on the register but i cant find any related key.

Wireshark shows that sname is filled in the offer.

I can't debug on the operative system, I suspect that Windows ignore this value and just is not available at application level but not 100% sure. Maybe i need yo actívate some options to make Windows CE make It available un the register. Any sugestion os really appreciate!

This would be a question for a Windows CE support forum of some sort. The fact that Wireshark is able to show it doesn't say anything about what the client does with it. This is outside the realm of Wireshark.

Yes, you are right.
Its been quite frustrated trying to find an answer for such an old platform, and I though wireshark users use to be really experience people dubuging this type if issues. Thanks any way and sorry for bad place posting.
