DHCP issue when RAS is not configured

By hamidsafe03 ·
I face a problem with RAS getting my valuable dynamic IPs from the range I use though I have not configured RAS .I already checked the Microsoft but they beleive that it is a bug in NT4 and not 2000 servers .The interesting thing is that the PCs are always the same PCs .Any suggestion ?

Use private addressing and put the RAS server off on it's own segment to keep it away from the valuable dynamic IP's.

Is the RAS server configured to hand out a pool of addresses? How many addresses is it handing out? Do you need more IP addresses due to growth?

As I said the RAS is not configured in my LAN thats the catch and also that is not an issue with the private and public IP that's the range of dynamic IP's configured to be used in this subnet in a corporate network with different subnets .

I believe if RAS is installed, even if it's not really configured or being used, it will definitely grab IPs. You have two choices - go in and configure RAS and just disable all of the ports it has created, or completely uninstall RAS if you're not going to use it at all.

Hope this helps!
