DHCP Option 156

I am trying to setup DHCP Option 156 for Shoretel phones. The problem is that when I set it up the values I put in are invalid. I am copying the values off my Windows server at another location and adjusting them but they don't work. Even putting in a simple ftpservers= does not work. Keeps saying "Invalid value entered for the Type selected". If I put in a custom option and use 156 as text it does take it. Just not sure if thats going to work or not.

    I just looked at a Sonicwall that has Option 156 configured. But its type is setup as String. Not sure if that is the same as text. Will try and find out.

    Using Custom, I can add the following Text string with no issues in Policy Manager V12.5.1
    configservers=, ftpservers=, country=n, language=n, layer2tagging=n, vlanid=n

    Yep, using Text did work.
