DHCP Control - One Client only? (Other - free products)

by jwhite, Thursday, July 21, 2005, 23:23 (6194 days ago)

I worked about a week to make a fully functional DHCP server using the WodDHCP com control, only to find out that I can only get one PC to connect and get it's config.
I thought it was my VB code doing this, so I used the included sample full dhcp server, and it has the same problem...
The 1st PC connects just fine, gets it's config... perfectly.
Once the 2nd PC attempt to get it's config, it just hangs there for a while and gets no responce from the DCHP server. The Log shows no activity... the PC's get no config... but the 1st one continues to renew it's config and it shows in the log that everthing was accepted.
Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks,
Joel

Joel,

it shouldn't be like that. We do have many users who use wodDHCPServer (perhaps because it's free? :) and we didn't have reports like this.

Do you have any logs, such as from Ethereal? Are PC's request packets sent?

I was able to work around this problem by doing a
dhcp.stop
dhcp.start
at the end of the DHCP_Request function.
