3. Client response: DHCP REQUEST

This stage is similar to the first, except that the client now requests a particular IP address from the DHCP server. Additionally, some clients will use this method to request the IP address they previously used (for instance last bootup); if it is denied (DHCP NAK) they will fall back to the first stage.
