Looking at my current leases in my DHCP server, I notice that there are about 10 leases, which are all leased to <myexchangeserver.mydomain.com>, and they all have the little yellow phone next to them.  Can anyone shed some light on this?  Simple network setup with that one Exchange server, no dial-up, and 4 VPN connections going through a SonicWall....I'm not sure exactly what those leases are for.....Thanks.

Hello tenover,

I believe, these icons represent icons fron the RRAS service reserving IP's for your dial in or VPN clients. Sometimes DHCP has to reserve a few from the pool for allocation to the clients. When a client (from outside) connects to your server via a VPN, the VPN would asssign them with a DHCP address. Try disabling the VPN and see if these leases are still around, you might have to kill the leases first.

Thanks
