Getting DHCP Address

Level 1
Level 1

Installed the TBA and it will not get an IP address from our Windows 2008 server.  The ESW got an IP and if I remember correctly the WAP4400N got one before I hard set it.  I connected the TBA to another web enabled router (basically the client DMZ) and it was able to get an IP from an RV082.  I finished the setup and then put it back into the main network and restarted it.  No IP.  Doesn't show in CDP from the ESW that it is attached to.  Do I need to tweak my DHCP server?

Assuming you have enough free IPs in your pool, I doubt there's anything you can do to break your DHCP server, but I'd certainly check your server's Event Viewer to see if DHCP is creating any entries.  Also, ensure security on the ESW port is not locked down too tightly.  I have my ESW's set as "Server" for the TBA port.


As Brian said, the default port settings on the ESW are very restrictive. Try changing the Smartport role to "Server" from the dashboard, or try to disable port security. I will call you to discuss.
