Have you ensured you have configured the clients to use a dynamically assigned IP address.

Have you checked that your routers are acting as DHCP-relay-agents?

Worst case scenario.. sniff


There is no connection in DHCP, it works over UDP

hey chandak , it would be helpful if you describe your network setup , basically the connectivity between your server and the client which is not receivinf the address...There could be lots of reasons.

1) Is there connectivity between the 2 machines ?? check it out..

2) Is the client correctly configured to receiver addresses ??

3) Is the server configured to assign addresses ??

4) is there a router present between the 2 ??
