I was already doing the dhcp to request the updated settings, but looks like i did miss mentioning it. Either way, the site-local-128 was exactly what i was after. Smile

Have just implemented it now and it's working a charm. Thank you again for your help.

As a follow-up note, you should also be able to use custom encapsulated options. For example:

option space myopts;
option my-encap-opts code 128 = encapsulate myopts;
option myopts.scriptname code 1 = string;

option myopts.scriptname "http://bla/script.ipxe";

and then, from within iPXE:

echo ${128.1:string}
