DHCP renew time for outside interface of PIX 501

I have a customer with a PIX501 connected to an ADSL-subscriber.

When using the following command on a PIX-501 "ip address outside dhcp setroute" the PIX gets an IP-address on the outside interface.

My question is how often the PIX renegotiates the IP-address with the outside DHCP-server ? Can you set the time manually in the PIX ?

The ADSL-subscriber has had big problems with their DHCP-servers which has required new IP-addresses of all devices on the ADSL-segment. It would be good if the PIX renegotiated the IP-address itself instead of using the "power-off"-"power on" method...

Re: DHCP renew time for outside interface of PIX 501

The problem is that the lease time is detemined by the DHCP server. You cannot set a timeout value on the PIX to renegotiate the IP-address. Although I don't know the command by head, there is a command that shows you the value of hte lease time (remember that the PIX verifies its assigned address halfway the lease time).
