Hi there, I have a pc on a network that was infected with something - virus or spyware on it. What this system is doing is shutting down the DHCP service on the server. When I check the IP of the workstation, it shows 10.10.11.2 for an IP address, subnet 255.255.255.252, dhcp server 10.10.11.1. Our network IP scheme is 192.168.0.xxx.
