DHCP Manager

In the DHCP manager window Active
Leases, what do the icons looking like a
screen with a telephone in front stand
for? And what does "BAD ADDRESS"
mean? And is there any way to find out if
there are any static addresses not in the
reserved ranges of DHCP MAnager?

BAD ADDRESS means there may be a duplicate IP on the network, possible an address that is part of the pool being set statically on a machine on the network.

The telephone icons indicate that those addresses have been reserved/allocated for RAS dial-in clients only.

It's tough to find statically set addresses without checking each machine, but a scanner such as NMAP can sweep whole subnets and register which IPs are active. Note that if there is a conflict on an address, it will may or may not respond to a subnet sweep, but the info in the DHCP log can enable you to figure out where the problem is.

Hope that helps,
