DHCP reservations

I am going from a Windows Server DHCP to our Sophos Firewall.

Am I to understand that the Sophos Firewall does not do static IP reservations? Or at least does not do it in the same manner as Windows does?

Does the reserved IP have to be outside of the lease pool?

  • Hi ,

    I just mean that traditionally DHCP reservations are reserved IP's within a scope. No need to create gaps in the dynamic lease pool to insert a static IP.

    In essence, the Sophos Firewall…

  • It is also important to mention that To avoid an IP address clash between regularly assigned addresses from the DHCP pool and those statically mapped make sure that the latter are not in the scope of the DHCP pool.

    For example, a static mapping of 192.168.0.200 could result in two systems receiving the same IP address if the DHCP pool is 192.168.0.100 – 192.168.0.210.
