HP thin client does not get dhcp ip whereas laptop in same port, same cable does
Posted on 2009-02-18
Hi, We have a new thin client (WinCE 5.0) that wont pick up an IP address, but the same physical network connection to a laptop will. The thin client is set to dhcp and worked in the office before it was sent out. It is at a remote office on managed WAN. There are 8 other clients at the office that have no trouble (HP) getting dhcp, but most of them are fat clients and one is a HP thin client (t5525 or 5725 from iirc) running Linux and it has no problems.
Thin client is a HP T5530 Win CE 5
Between dhcp server and it is: dhcpserver->router->wan->router->hub->thin client.
If there is a way to fix this up remotely that would be great, otherwise it may work being manually set - I will travel out if so, but my worry is there is some incompatibility with the NIC in the thin client and dhcp over router hops or something like that?
