setting up dhcp server service on cisco 2600

hi, is anyone successfully using the dhcp server service on a cisco router? i have set it up using the commands from cisco documentation and put the service dhcp command in but my clients cannot find a dhcp server. is there another command anywhere to turn it on?

Pete,

I have used this quite a bit. Can you post the DHCP portion of your configuration?

Hello,

here is a sample configuration of a Cisco IOS DHCP server:

ip dhcp pool 0

network 172.16.0.0 /16

domain-name cisco.com

dns-server 172.16.1.102 172.16.2.102

default-router 172.16.1.1

netbios-name-server 172.16.1.103 172.16.2.103

netbios-node-type h-node

That is really all you need to configure, with this configuration your clients will get an address from the 172.16.0.0/16 range.

Turn on debugging with the command:

debug ip dhcp server events

term mon

to see what your DHCP server actually does.

Re: setting up dhcp server service on cisco 2600

thanks guys, i thought my config was right. The problem was on the clients. We are migrating from Microsoft dhcp servers and when i typed ipconfig /renew they were still looking for the Microsoft dhcp server. I had to type ipconfig /release then reboot to get them to pick up from the Cisco 2600, but all is now well.
