My first suggestion would be to brush up up on your professional writing skills. Secondly, I would shoot myself if I was the admin of a network that had 700 hosts all of which are using a static addressing scheme. As far as implementing a DHCP server, Windows Server will do just fine, or you could use DHCP on your router, (depending on model)

Is there an advantage to having a dedicated Windows Server 2003 running as a DHCP server V.S. having a router to provide the DHCP service?


Re: dhcp vs static 12 years 1 month ago #20674

I do not consider myself to be a professor in windows 2003, but I could see advantages in using Windows 2003 for DHCP for several reasons:

1)Delegate control through active directory
2)Good integration with Windows DNS. When DHCP updates an address it updates records in the DNS database.
3)A nice GUI with good reporting and stats
4)Detects unauthorized DHCP servers in network.

I am not saying that windows is the only software that will do these things, but they do make it pretty easy.

I am not sure, I know that a DHCP server will send a DHCPINFORM via multicast is it then possible to restrict what hosts are in the multicast group?
