DHCP on the server and DHCP on the Router

Hello,

DHCP is active on my server 2003. My new ISP is giving me 16 Public IPs. Right now we are no using any Public IPs. So my ISP decided no activate the DHCP on the Router for those 16 public IPs, they say to avoid conflict with the DHCP on my server.

My questions:

1. Can occur a conflict if my DHCP on the server give IPs to my workstations and the Router has his own DHCP to manage the 16 public ips?

2. My ISP can do not activate the DHCP on the router but can assign me a static public IPs to my computer?

3. Do you know how the DHCP on the router assign these public IPs to my workstations.

I am not familiar with these and I need to know if the ISP is correct.

Thank you

You should not have two DHCP devices on the same network that are serving up two different scopes.  This will prevent your devices from talking to each other as some with have an IP address from your server and some will have an IP address from your router.    

Unless reservations are created in DHCP, then workstation will have a first come first server in terms of what IP address they have.
