DHCP assignments - I would like to have my server assign addresses as a fast as possible.
Posted on 2013-02-04
Is there a way to set DHCP to assign addresses as fast as possible- Almost ad-hoc?
That is: I have 50 PC's and 30 possible IP addresses that map directly to another network.
I have set up DHCP to give away those 30 IP's.
The 50 PCs arent on all the time, they are getting turned on and off during the day.
At any given pint in time, there are only 28 PC's on. Some are on, some are off.
However, I am getting messages that point out to running out of addresses in my scope.
I am trying to get my DHCP server to act more like a cheap DSL router... where IP's are given away and reclaimed as soon as the PC / Node in question is no longer connected. Is this possible?
