How to force clients to use DHCP server

Sat Oct 04, 2008 7:04 am

I wanna force clients to use the DHCP server , by checking "Obtain an IP adress Automatically"
???
cause noticed that in the hotspot user Hosts the Mikrotik recognize them by the way they loged in by the letters "AH" means "authorized DHCP"
so is it possible to force them to use the DHCP server ??
i'm using hotspot ..
thanx

you can use arp=reply-only on your hotspot interface, and then check 'add arp for leases' in dhcp server - after that, only dhcp-assigned addresses will have access to the router

Set the interface to reply-only arp and enable add-arp on the dhcp server.
