ip address conflict
tedg Oct-10-01 03:12 PM
Tell me why is the ip address is when
run "ipconfig" thru "dos prompt" and then when i go on "network and dial connections" and right click on my lan connection - tcp/ip properties - it tells me obtain ip address automically. Is the ip address when i run ipconfig the adress given by automically by "DHCP server"? It follows that the ip address changes day by day if it is set automically by "DHCP" sever?

Yes your exactly right. The DHCP server assigns your pc a unique (hopefully) address. What you can see is the address that your pc has got a that current time. The time you hold this "Lease" depends wholey on how it is configured on the DHCP server and is not a setting you can alter on your pc. Often you may find you have the same ip address several days running.
