I just tried running you code, and the "sendto" call fails with "Network is unreachable". That's what I expected, based on other tests I've done. That's why I was asking about how to do raw sockets, since tools like dhclient use raw sockets to do what they do. It can clearly be duplicated in Python, I just need to find some code samples on how to construct a raw packet.
