IP leases on DHCP

by curlergirl In reply to IP leases on DHCP

Even though you have stopped the service, the DHCP server will not release the addresses it has assigned until the lease period is up. You can manually release them, but as soon as RRAS is started again, it will grab these addresses again. You canlimit the number of addresses that are claimed by RRAS by removing any devices that are configured in RRAS that you don't need. For example, typically RRAS configures 10 VPN channels automatically; if you don't need this many, you can remove then and keep only the ones you feel will be used. Hope this helps!
