DCHP and dynamic IP#'s


Recommended Posts

For the longest time now I've used TCP/IP to connect my clients to my server. All our clients were using static IP address so it was quite easy. Now, we are segmenting our network and using a DHCP server to 'dynamically' assign IP address to users as they connect in in the mornings. How can I configure my Retrospect server to connect to my Retrospect clients when I don't know what their IP numbers are going to be?

Here's text from a Knowledgebase entry on DHCP clients:

 

 

 

Retrospect supports backing up DHCP clients on the network. Be sure that you log them in with the default access method (Multicast) or Subnet Broadcast, and Retrospect will find clients even if their IP address changes. Adding clients by address means that Retrospect will look for that client at that address only and is only suitable for clients with static IP addresses.

 

 

 

Multicast is the default access method for finding clients in the local subnet. For information on Subnet Broadcast and Direct IP addressing, please see the Retrospect User's Guide.
