I seem to recall having this issue a few months back, however it's working fine for me in the June 23 22:36 nanoBSD build on a net5501.

I use dhcp on a couple pppoe parent interfaces to talk to the modems. Just finished setting it up, actually.

this is a test firewall that I fresh installed and configured (no packages and minimal config) a month or two back and I only use it for testing the latest snapshots.  I'll re-flash and upload my config and see if that takes care of it.

Thank you both for the feedback!

I just installed 1.2.3 this afternoon and found the release button isn't working. i did the packet capture and the pfsense didn't do anything when i hit release compared to when i did a renew which it sent out a few DHCP packets.

Tried to do it via CLI but dhclient command didn't have -r option either.

Is there a way to do DHCP release on 1.2.3 or it only worked on 2.0 BETA?

Thanks,
