IP address pool

Hello,

I use Network Connect with an IP address pool.

Does anyone know how long the "lease time" of an IP is?
I am testing my configuration at the moment and everytime when I connect with a differnt PC

I get another IP.


Regards,

Andre

Re: IP address pool

7 days; however, the IVE will try to assign the same IP to the same user if possible. If, however, the pool is of 5 IPs but 7 users connect at different times, 2 IPs will be used for different users.

Re: IP address pool

I don't recall, but if I remember correctly, a pc will continue to get the same address each time they connect. As long as the pool has previously unallocated addresses, each new pc will get a different address. If you allocated 10.2.0.20 - 10.2.0.63, then the 54th pc to connect would be the first machine to get a recycled address.

If you want to know what your lease time is, use IPCONFIG /ALL on the pc because as far as the pc is concerned, it received the lease from a DHCP server.
