Thanks for your kind answer. I was wondering why I only see this on the
ue0 interface (which is to my Ubuntu mobile phone when I'm in the
fields) and not on the Wifi wlan0. But, perhaps this is due to the very
short renewal interval of 1800 secs:

DHCPREQUEST on ue0 to port 67
bound to -- renewal in 1800 seconds.

I will let pass this traffic from now.
