Is it possible to get the IP-number/subnet-mask from a DHCP/BOOTP-server within OS/2-Warp 3?
Has anyone an additional driver/program for this?

Yes it's possible and I've done it. Patches are required. I have them. Increase points 100 and I'll give you all the details. Increase points offered to 200 and I'll send you a file wil all the patches.

Do you have TCP/IP already i.e. WARP Connect?
If so, you can download two fixes one for MPTS and one for TCP/IP from Ibm. Apply the fixes
and reboot.  Then go into the TCP/IP configuration and select DHCP on the Address page.

When I did it last year, there were 5 separate patches that were required in addition to the MPTN and TCP/IP fixPaks.

OK, just found out the "points" system here is a joke so here's the info (note this is how we did it a few months ago, there may be newer updates now):

1) - get and apply TCP/IP FixPak UN00067 (3 diskettes)
2) - get and apply MPTS Refresh WR08210  (6 diskettes)

The Fixpaks actually add the DHCP feature, but the following patches are required to make it work properly:

IC13157
IC14205
IC14468
IC15181
IC15573

The above patches replace just a couple of files each. Unfortunately, I've forgotten where we got all the fixes. Take a look at ftp://service.boulder.ibm.com/ps/products/os2/fixes/v3.0warp/english-us

I have that location bookmarked so that may have been where we got them. If you can't find the patches, I may be able to email them to you. The fixpaks are too large so you'll have to download those for yourself.

Good luck,

Higher points or grade is not acceptable, because of the first answer !
Thanks for your help.
