Hi guys, thanks for the ideas. Unfortunately I'm no further. I tried
playing around with your suggestions, but I still end up at the same point,
which is that pump is started, and does nothing except write a debug syslog
message that it is requesting a lease. The interface itself is brought up
OK - if I type ifconfig I can see the interface and number of packets
sent/received ticks up, it's just I don't get an IP address. I'm copying
this to the pump maintainer (hello Steve), maybe he's got some ideas.
