Random IP Addresses within DHCP Drop Packets When Accessing Resource At Remote Location
Posted on 2007-11-20
I have a Windows 2003 Domain that is supported by two DCs that each also are configured as DHCP Servers which lease IP Addresses to my 300 Dell Optiplex Client Machines. The addresses they lease are 172.16.2.x & 172.16.3.x
I have recently noticed that some clients that receive an IP Address of 172.16.3.x are unable to access HTTP resources properly at my parent companies site. When try they try, page either partically loads or they get the page cannot be displayed message.
What is even stranger is that the problem seems to travel with the IP Address. In that when the lease expires and it is assigned to a new client, then that client has the problem accessing the resource. So it does not appear to be a hardware problem.
I have looked at all the switches and routers concerned and they appear to be functioning as they should. I cannot notice any CRCs or alarming Retransmits.
I have used ethereal to monitor the network but again cannot see anything that i would deem relevant.
Can some assist me on this matter.
