DHCP Server

IP Office DHCP Server

IP Office can manage your IP Network for you through its integral DHCP Server. IP Office can be configured to hold a pool of IP addresses for users on the Local Area Network. When a user powers up their PC, the system will allocate them an IP address for the duration of their session. The DHCP server also provides the user’s PC with the address of the Domain Name Service (DNS) server and the Windows Name Service (WINS) server.

Alternatively, for customers who have a separate DHCP Server, IP Office can be configured to obtain its address from that DHCP server or be set with its own static IP address. Both IP500 and IP500 V2 have two independent DHCP servers, one dedicated to each of the Layer 3 switched LANs.
