DHCP in QS/2 Warp 3

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.

Where can we find the patches ?
gpricharCommented:
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,
