Hi,

Is it possible to block dhcp requests/offers from clients with a specific domain suffix?

For example we have a public network and people keep physically plugging their corporate laptops into it and surfing the net.  We want to stop corporate machines from getting a DHCP address.  

We are currently using Windows 2003 Adv server for DHCP.

Many thanks

You're going to need to add some additional security such as Radius/Internet Authentication Service to your environment.  DHCP can't do the job.

Microsoft has several guides:

Thanks we thought that would be the only way, I just wanted to check.  unfortunately I don't know the mac addresses and can't setup radius for this specific network so I will just continue to add clients to the dhcp deny list when I see them.

Configuring network clients can be a chore, especially if there are a large number of them or a lot of itinerant users.  DHCP dynamically manages this process, much to the relief of users and administrators alike!
