[lwip-users] Setting my hostname on a LAN controlled by Windows 2003 Server

I'm building an embedded web server using LWIP. It uses DHCP to get an IP address, and I have enabled hostnames so the name is sent back in the DHCP REQUEST packet.
This platform is an example kit for customers so I want them to be able to plug it into their LAN and then navigate to the server using its hostname in a web browser.
This doesn't seem to work on our network which uses Windows 2003 Server. I suspect that the list of hostnames is secured by the windows domain server, so it won't dynamically assign the hostname for my server when I plug it in.
