assigning ip from dhcp server

April 17, 2007 at 15:37:02
Specs: Windows 2003 R2, 8
Server Service:

Router: Dlink 514
DHCP service is disabled

Right now I am using static IP

My question is how do I assign IP using the server DHCP service, but not the router? I want to use my server to assigning ip to clients

If you've configured the Router with static IP, the Router will not get an IP address from the DHCP server.
The clients must be configured for using DHCP.
So the clients will request an IP address from any DHCP server in your local area network.
In this case it is necessary to run only 1 DHCP server in this network to avoid DHCP problems.
With the DHCP service, you are able to deliver additional informations to the clients, like DNS server, standard gateway a.s.o.

Was your question answered? For example what dns access do you put in for your dhcp clients? Answer is your servers dns. How do they get to the internet? Answer is you put the ISP's dns entries in the DNS servers forwarders tab.

Give a person a fish, they eat for a day. Suggest they internet search and they learn a skill for a lifetime.
