Yes, I'm sure. Notice the extra "c" in there. I'm using the DHCP client
deamon. That is, a client that runs in the background keeping my DCHP
lease up to speed. The -n option will cause it to signal a renewal.
Also, I get similar results if I use the dhclient utility instead of dhcpcd.
But thanks for your suggestion!
