Not tried this. As per my first messeage I have been relying on the /var/log/syslog (only thought of that after I had removed the dhcpcd and installed dhcp-client:-))

There is a config file that is optional. You can pass the above type info in that file and it is fed into a bash script that uses ifconfig to do most of the work from what I can gather.
