Restrict DHCP offers accepted

Post#1 by ccortezia » 06 May 2015, 19:32

Hi there. I need to deploy a kiosk on a network that may have 2 dhcp servers.
I know the subnet of the correct dhcp server to accept offers from.

1) How can I restrict the dhcp client so that it only accept offers from the right server ?
2) More generally speaking, can I restrict incoming network traffic (dhcp offers, which I am not sure can be classified as incoming) from the wizard ?

you wont be able to do this in the wizard or even by remastering the ISO (i think).

filtering MACs on the server side is the (only?) solution: ... 21761.aspx
Please add [Solved] to your thread title if the solution was found.
