Hi,

I have been using 2XThinClientServer for a while but recently ive changed my dhcp server from the microsoft one to a new 450g mikrotik router with ROS level 5, but i am getting the error server failed to acknowledge recieved settings.

this is what i get before the error

Sending ThinClientOS DHCP request....
ignoring bogus reply, server assigned IP 172.16.220.219 but acknowledged IP 172.16.220.219
retrying (2 of 3)
timeout while waiting for acknowledgment for DHCP settings
retrying (3 of 3)
timeout while waiting for acknowledgment for DHCP settings

it would appear that my DHCP is set up correctly with all options set but im tearing my hair out over this.

Thanks in advance

Is the MT's DHCP server bound to the same interface as where the ThinClientOS is connected to, are they both in the same broadcast domain? Are you using a bridge interface or real ether interfaces? We might have to resort to you posting your config if this is not going to be easy to diagnose.
