DHCP, Fixed IP, Window SBS 2003 - Odd connection issues
Posted on 2006-06-18
This is really odd and starting to annoy me.
- Windows SBS 2003 server is configured to send out IP address to clients (DHCP enabled) (server is 192.168.16.10 (internal) - mask is 255.255.255.0 - DNS - 192.168.16.10 (which points at external device 192.168.0.254 - the router/modem)
- Client is configured to obtain IP address automatically.
Issues sometime the client will obtain an IP address and sometimes it wont. Any ideas on what I can check or how I can configure either client or server for more diagnostic information.
As above but I give the client a fixed IP of say 192.168.16.42 and again sometimes I can and I cannot get access to the network.
I am sure the physical network cables and hardware is good.
