Re: I want to block DHCP Server

DHCP client requests are sent from DHCP client (68) to server's DHCP server port (67). Server replies using port 67 to client's port 68. All above are UDP obviously. So to block rogue DHCP servers put an input ACL 'deny any eq 68 any' to AP radio interface and this should work. Also remember that DHCP client for initial message exchanges uses as src IP and as dest IP so do not replace 'any' with your IP subnets. Hope this helps.
