DHCP

Can XP Home obtain an IP Address from a server 2003 DHCP?

Can XP Pro do it without joining the domain?  Server 2003 is the only DC.

Thanks

Yes and Yes.

You might need to configure the DHCP relay agent (ip helper) if you have routers in between the subnets.  If everything is on the same subnet as the scope defined, it should work good.

Same subnet...  In fact, the only thing I changed on the router was disabling DHCP.

So, I introduced a server and statically set it's IP address and fired up the DHCP server (from the same server).

If everything is on the same subnet, just turn on the DHCP on the server like you already did and any client in the same subnet will broadcast and the DHCP server should respond and hand out an address.

Have you configured the scope on the server.

Is the server in a domain or a workgroup?  Either way, right click the server name in the DHCP MMC and select Authorize.
Also ensure the scope is activated (right click the scope).
