SBS 2000 DHCP

Hi,

i am having a strange problem with the dhcp setting on my SBS2000 server.  I have setup a range of ip addresses to be allocated to clients.  The problem i have is on the client pc running winipcfg, shows up the dhcp server ip but not an allocated ip address for the client or the release time and date, even though it is able to login and surf the network.

Any suggestions.

Thanks

the clients are 9x/me and 2000, the only info in winipcfg is the ip of the dhcp server, the ip and mask fields are both zero.

strange, is there another DHCP in the network (ICS activated on a client?) so that the SBS DHCP is not active/authorized?
Can you do a "ipconfig /renew" on a win2k client?

Hi Franka,

Thanks for you help, but FYI the problem was caused because the dhcp and the server had different class of subnets.

Thanks
