I assume that it is to do with the fact the socket is not connected; however I can't connect to a DHCP client since its IP address has not yet been assigned.

Just wondering: why are you using MSG_DONTROUTE?
Are you tcpdump-ing or anything (in that case, give us some output), or 
just letting $! be your guide? :)

I'd also try to use some of the examples from Net::DHCP::Packet's 
perldoc, see if they work first.

Sorry I can't be of more help...
