F/W - dhcpd deamon question

Hi all:

I have a question about an error message I have seen off
and on now.. for quite some time :-)

I seem to get:

dhcpd: send_packet: Permission denied

On my main server quite a bit... like once every 3-5 minutes.

Now I have a F/W up and I am thinking maybe its a rule I
am missing or something..

The complaint is about a interface I allow dhcp to speak
too (inside my nat).. and I am not sure what dhcpd wants
to announce.. I am guessing its a broadcast of some sort.
As to it working.. it seems to work just fine, I am getting
dhcpd request and devices do get addresses... so I am
curious.. has anyone seen this (probably so) and whats
the simple F/W or other rule I am missing to make
dhcpd completly happy ;-D
