Virtual hub internal DHCP assign same address to same client

Post by altuin » Tue Apr 16, 2013 11:17 am

Is it possible to configure the internal dhcp server in such a way that it would assign the same ip address to a client after the client reconnects? If it is, would it function based on mac filtering or username filtering? I already tried setting the lease time to 0 (default is 7200) but the ok button becomes greyed out once I select 0.

Thanks in advance!

Virtual DHCP server function assigns IP address based on MAC address.
But this MAC-IP table is not persistent.

If you want to manage properly, it makes more sense to use the external DHCP server.

My purpose is to connect different clients to different virtual hubs so I don't think using an external DHCP server will solve my problem. I need different ip classes for the virtual hubs so that clients are not able to see each other's networks.

Thank you!

You can use DHCP server host with VPN Client to assign different network address for each hub.
