Doubts over DHCP Leasing way
Posted on 2009-04-23
Hi friends !
I am little bit confused about the DHCP leasing way.
For example, I have set DHCP lease for 15 days. Now a client gets an ip address 192.168.5.11 from the DHCP server on 01st April 2009 at 8:00 a.m. (It means from 01st April to 15th April 2009)
It is obvious that client PCs are turned on in the morning and shut down in the evening when employees return back for home.
Now, my question is:
1. Does DHCP Server takes the ip address back from the client when the client pc is shut down and next day when the client PC starts again, it takes the new (or same) IP address from DHCP Server for next 15 days. (02nd April to 16th April 2009)
2. The same ip address is taken for 15 days and is not given to any other client PC in any condition.
Please also tell me what is good ? To have longer lease or shorter lease.
