    Dhcp and Windows Mach. Problem

    Dear all,

    I installed Dhcp3 Server on Debian, but I have a problem.Problem, some windows machines can not connection local windows machines.

    What is wrong ? Thanks, best regards.

    My configuration is below.

    ddns-update-style none;
    default-lease-time 600;
    max-lease-time 7200;

    log-facility local7;

    allow unknown-clients;
    # A slightly different configuration for an internal subnet.
    subnet netmask {
    option domain-name-servers;
    option domain-name "local";
    option routers;
    option broadcast-address;
    default-lease-time 600;
    max-lease-time 7200;
    option netbios-node-type 1;
    # option ntp-servers;

    Read error msg from /var/log maybe can help you getting know the root cause of the prob!

    range; suppose

    default-lease-time 600; twice?
    max-lease-time 7200; twice?

    Some Windows machine can't get the IP coz they received DHCPack as unicast while your DHCP server sending it as broadcast.
