DHCP

Hi

DHCPDiscover is a broadcast message.

When we setting lease to a week, example:

init: 09/18/2007

end: 09/25/2007

In the 09/23/07, the host client would send a DHCPDiscover (broadcast message)? Or the information of end lease is in the host client too?

Thanks

Re: DHCP

Hi Friend,

DHCP enabled host also obtain end lease information in DHCP message. When lease is about to expire client sends a DHCP request message and not a Discovery message to renew the lease.
