WIN NT4.0 Token Ring DHCP Server

By isgahod ·
Hi,

Currently I have a Token Ring DHCP Server running
on WIN NT 4.0. Tried to configure my Ethernet workstations running on WIN NT 4.0 workstation using DHCP to allocate IP address. This does not work. Any solutions. Is it because my DHCP server
is using a Token Ring NIC which have a different
IP segments and gateway( TokenRing is on 10.4.61.0
and Ethernet is on 10.4.62.0 )

Are you on a ethernet segment? Whats connecting the segments, whats the router? How about the DHCP setup on the NT server, is it set with a pool for the 10.4.62.x segment?

The problem is not that one segment is token ring, and another ethernet. Lots of other stuff that can be wrong, but topolgy is not the issue.

How are the two segments connected? For DHCP you need some way of letting broadcast traffic over the router/switch.

You could install a DHCP relay agent on the far segment from the DHCP server.

In my current setup, as my DHCP Server is in the
TokenRing segment( 10.4.61.0 ), to communicate with the Ethernet segment(10.4.62.0) the traffic
is route through a router(gateway) which is configured to have a TokenRing and Ethernet IPs.
My network backbone is on TokenRing.

Hi

The DHCP relay agent is available only in NT4 Server or Win2k server.

To install, in the Network Properties choose Services then Add and it should be near the top of the list.
