Hi Alan

My apologies, I have realised that I had my terminology mixed up.  I was
meaning to say static DHCP lease IP rather than the static IP address

I am also looking forwards to V4 as I have read that there are plans for
the DHCP service.  Are there any particular planned changes for the DHCP

   - Kind Regards
