I think you'd need the ports version of the DHCP client for working with

No, it doesn't. You're supposed to put a *remote* address in that
variable, not a local one.

You can list any remote IP addresses in the variable that you
want, including, for example, public DNS servers. In particular, you
should do it for both IPv4 and IPv6.

Just out of interest, where did you get the idea of doing it this way?
