I have a need to setup DHCP for a small number of users at a remote location. I know how to setup basic DHCP on the switch. However, I need a couple of other options like, SNTP, Time offset, and option 160. Is there a way to add these to the configuration, I have not had really good luck with the documentation.

I am not sure what option 160 is, but a quick google seems to indicate that it uses a value that is of type text.
below is from the manual for the FastIron.
Configure a vendor type and configuration value for a DHCP client
The vendor-class command specifies the vendor-type and configuration value for a DHCP client.
FastIron(config-dhcp-cabo)# vendor class ascii waikiki
Syntax: vendor-class <> <value>
So if I am reading the manual right I do not see how it could work.
However try the below, you would need to add under the DHCP pool level
FastIron(config-dhcp-cabo)# vendor 160
However if that is correct then the manual is wrong and needs updating

I saw that however, my understanding is that a "class" is different than an "option" I would like to be wrong about this so I can move forward. However, I can not just experiment as I do not have one of these switches available that is not in production.
I have other switches from other mfgs that allow you to just create new options on the fly. I guess that is what I was hoping to find.
