I have a Cisco 831 router. I am handing out DHCP to my network via the router
ip dhcp pool HmPrivate
network 192.168.1.0 255.255.255.0
What I am trying to do is assign the same ip address to my laptop via DHCP by associating the mac address of the laptop to the DHCP ip address. This is easily done on a windows server.
I have not been able to figure it out on this router though. I have looked at the commands under the pool as well as in config mode. Nothing is jumping out at me.
Any assistance is greatly appreaciated!
DHCP manual binding doesn't use the mac address. You need to configure the client id to manually bind an address to a host. The client id uses ASCII characters. The easy to way to find the client ID is to enable 'debug ip dhcp server packet' on your router and use that address as your client ID under the DHCP pool configuration. Exercise caution when enabling debugs in a production network.
