Windows XP Mode in 7 and DHCP
Posted on 2010-11-30
On my Windows 7 Professional computer -- and all of the other computers in the same segment -- receive DHCP responses from our primary DHCP server. We also have a DHCP server on our firewall that serves VPN clients (more reliably) with a different range.
The problem is that my Virtual Windows XP session on my Windows 7 computer receives DHCP requests from the firewall's DHCP server and not our primary DHCP server.
1. Why would it receive requests from a different server than it's host?
2. Is there a way to force it to query a specific DHCP server?
I could set a Static IP if necessary, but I'd prefer not to. Thanks in advance!
